November 13, 2010 (KATAKAMI / FCO.GOV.UK) — “Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s arbitary detention for most of the last 20 years has been deeply unjust. Her fortitude in the face of this outrage has been inspirational.”

“I welcome news of her release.  She must now be allowed to assume a role of her choosing in the political life of her country without further hindrance or restriction.”

“Last week’s sham elections will not bring peace and prosperity to Burma.  The regime now needs to release the other 2,100 political prisoners and begin a genuine dialogue with Aung San Suu Kyi and all opposition and ethnic groups.  These remain the crucial first steps to solving Burma’s many problems and addressing the pressing needs of its people.”  (*)
