Brown ‘saddened and angry’ at Suu Kyi verdict

The Prime Minister described the move by the army-ruled Burma as politically
motivated to prevent her from taking part in planned elections next year.

“It is further proof that the military regime in Burma is determined to act
with total disregard for accepted standards of the rule of law in defiance

objective is to sever her bond with the people for whom she is a beacon of
hope and resistance.”

He called for the United Nations’ Security Council to impose a worldwide ban
on the sale of arms to the regime.

Suu Kyi was sentenced by a court today for violating an internal security law
after an American swam uninvited to her lakeside home in May and stayed
there for two days, breaching the terms of her house arrest.
