Mandalay NLD members' appeal denied

Dec 3, 2008 (DVB), Mandalay divisional court yesterday summarily rejected the appeal of six Mandalay National League for Democracy members including organising committee member Win Mya Mya, said their lawyer Myint Thwin.

Win Mya Mya and her colleagues , organising committee member Kan Htun, Mandalay NLD deputy chairman Than Lwin, Win Shwe of Kyaukpadaung, Tin Ko Ko of Meikhtila and Min Thu of Moegok , were given jail terms of between two and 13 years at the end of October for their participation in the Saffron Revolution last year.

Their previous appeal at Mandalay provincial court was rejected on 5 November.

Myint Thwin said the group will continue to take its appeal to the higher level courts.
