Oct 23, 2007 (DVB), Unconfirmed reports have said that Burmese opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was picked up from her house yesterday evening by government officials and taken to an unknown location.
Sources in the former capital Rangoon said they had seen Daw Aung San Suu Kyi being taken from her house in University Avenue, where she has spent most of the past 18 years under house arrest, by government officials in a vehicle.
Han Tha Myit, a member of the information department of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy, told DVB that the party cannot confirm the reports.
"Some of our members went to the road where Daw Suu’s house is to confirm the news. But they were asked to turn back by government security forces who were guarding the road," Han Tha Myit said.
