Daw Suu visited by eye specialist

Oct 6, 2008 (DVB), An eye specialist spent about an hour visiting detained National League for Democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday, according to an NLD spokesperson.

NLD spokesperson Nyan Win said the specialist had accompanied Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's regular doctor to her house.

"We learned that Dr Tin Myo Win, his assistant and Dr Kan Nyunt visited the home of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi yesterday evening to perform a medical checkup," Nyan Win said.

"Dr Kan Nyunt is an eye specialist. We did not hear anything unusual about her health. Nor do we know the results of the medical examination yesterday."

Dr Tin Myo Win spent about three hours at Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's residence, according to eyewitnesses, while the eye examination lasted about an hour.

The Burmese authorities have agreed to allow Dr Tin Myo Win to visit Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on the first Thursday of every month, Nyan Win said.

His last visit was on 14 September.

Nyan Win also said that preparations were completed on Thursday for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's appeal, which will be submitted to regime leaders in Naypyidaw this week.
