Daw Aung San Suu Kyi--leader of Burma's opposition party, the National League for Democracy--has been taken into custody at her lakeside home in Rangoon, and held to face a special court at the notorious Insein Prison (sic!), along with her doctor Dr. Tin Myo Win and her live in caretakers, Khin Khin win and her daughter Win Ma Ma.  They are charged with violating security laws specifically crafter to control the conditions of Aung San Suu Kyi's house arrest.  She has been under house arrest for thirteen of the last nineteen years.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Buddhist activist for democracy in Burma, was due for release from house arrest at the end of this month....clearly, she poses a great threat to the opposition forces.  Trumped up charges have been brought against her, and if found guilty,
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi could spend the next several years in prison.  Please lend your voice to the international call for her release, and for the release of those who have been imprisoned unjustly under military rule in Burma.
