WFDY statement against ban to Aung San Suu Kyi to Participate in National Election

The World Federation of Democratic Youth shows it grave concern on recent development in Burma to ban Aung San Suu Kyi to participate in national election as per recent law promulgated by the Military Junta.

This development is accompanied with a charge of breaching the law of prison when uninvited stranger got entry to her lakeside house prison. Her house prison has been extended till November 2010 and the court had already rejected her appeal to release.

The pro-democratic leader and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Ki, 62, has already spent 14 years of illegal and immoral detention of house arrest in last 20 years. The consequences were developed after her party had won 80 percent of total parliament seats in 1990´s national election.

It is shrewd and trickery of Military Junta to put into pressure to National League for Democracy not to pay regard to its leader and her role for democracy in Burma. WFDY denounces such action of Military Junta in our strongest term as it is the mockery of law in Burma and that has only served to push back the blinking hope for democracy in deeper darkness.

Till now there are still more than 2000 students, youths and civilians in prison just for echoing their voice for democracy and justice in a peaceful manner.

We urge to all youth and student organization under WFDY umbrella to protest such action and show the solidarity with democratic struggle in Burma. We demand to Military Junta to retreat from such decision, and resume free and fair election in Burma to restore full democracy in the country. We appeal international community and human right organization to put pressure to release all political prisoners immediately along with pro-democratic leader Aung San Suu Ki.
