Two NLD members in unspecified arrest

Mar 10, 2009 (DVB), Two more Rangoon NLD members have been arrested, the party’s news and information committee said.

Sein Hlaing of Sanchaung township was arrested on 6 March, and Shwe Gyoe from Hlaing township on the 7 March.

It is still not known exactly why they were arrested and where they were taken to, party spokesman Nyan Win said.

"Shwe Gyoe is the father-in-law of someone who was arrested last year and who died in detention from torture," he said.

Three of the nine NLD members arrested last year for a protest demanding the release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi remain imprisoned at Insein jail. The other six were released in January.
