Myanmar court to consider Suu Kyi appeal
Myanmar's Supreme Court will this month consider whether to hear democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi's latest appeal against the dissolution of her political party, her lawyer said yesterday.
"We have to give our argument for the special appeal on January 24 at the Supreme Court in Naypyidaw," said Nyan Win, one of three attorneys who will represent the Nobel Peace Prize winner at the hearing in Myanmar's capital.
"We will argue that the dissolution of the party which won a free and fair election (in 1990) was not in accordance with the law," he said.
Her National League for Democracy (NLD) was disbanded last year for opting to boycott the military-ruled country's first election in 20 years in response to rules that seemed designed to bar her from taking part.
