NLD members arrested after demonstration

Mar 31, 2008 (DVB), Thingangyun township authorities have arrested six National League for Democracy members in connection with a demonstration in front of the NLD headquarters in Bahan last Thursday.

Ko Khin Soe Oo, Ko Ye Zaw Htike, Ko Tin Oo Maung, Ko Aung Than Htun, Ko Aung Kyaw Oo and Ko Zarni Aung were arrested yesterday.

The demonstration was held on National Armed Forces Day last week to urge people to vote No to the constitution in the national referendum in May.

Around 40 young people attended the demonstration, carrying placards calling for dialogue and the release of political prisoners and denouncing the national referendum.
