Daw Suu's lawyer frustrated by appeal delays

Jan 15, 2009 (DVB), Kyi Win, lawyer for detained democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, has expressed his frustration with the authorities’ slow response to her appeal against her house arrest.

Kyi Win's recent requests to meet his clients have also been rejected by the authorities.

"There has been no update yet apart from some government officials tell us it was being processed," Kyi Win said.

"The order to extend Daw Suu’s house arrest, which we are appealing against, will expire on 29 May. So we are worried that we might run out of time."

Kyi Win said he was planning to write another official letter to authorities complaining about the delays in the process.

He submitted a similar complaint letter at the end of December 2008 but has not yet received any response.
