Lawyer U Kyi Win 'positive' after Daw Suu visit

Sep 12, 2008 (DVB), U Kyi Win, lawyer for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, said his latest meeting yesterday with the detained National League for Democracy leader yielded some positive results.

Kyi Win said that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi would now be able to read letters sent by her children, as well as newspapers and magazines such as Time and Newsweek.

Authorities also granted permission for Daw Khin Khin Win and her daughter to come and go freely, but said they would be subject to searches on leaving and returning to the house during office hours, according to Kyi Win.

Kyi Win said Daw Khin Khin Win's daughter was still in hospital, but was likely to be discharged on Monday and would return to the house.

Kyi Win said that the rest of the meeting also went smoothly.

"I think the bumpy matter of Myint Soe [the food supplier whose deliveries have been refused, sparking rumours of a hunger strike] and his deliveries will be sorted out soon," he said.

"Dr Tin Myo Win will visit on Sunday for her medical checkup. It will be all right."

Kyi Win and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi also discussed the details of her draft appeal, which she amended and is expected to be finalised soon, once Kyi Win has obtained copies of the relevant documents from the authorities relating to the house arrest.

Kyi Win reported to officials from the Internal Affairs ministry before and after his meeting with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, which ran from 2pm to 4pm.

"The authorities are becoming quite obliging, on their part," Kyi Win said.

"She will be receiving personal mail from her sons, she will be allowed to read magazines and so on," he said.

"You could say that it has improved a lot."
