The Club of Madrid, with Aung San Suu Kyi

August 11, 2009

11 Aug 2009 - The Club of Madrid voices its deep concern over the recent decision to continue and prolong the prison sentence of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. We believe that continuing to deny her freedom is harmful not only to her health and well-being, but to the health and future of Burma/Myanmar's people and nation as well. We call on the country's rulers to work with the opposition towards dialogue and reconciliation, and offer our support to the international community towards such a process. In particular, we support the petition submitted on behalf of Suu Kyi’s family to the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and we call on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to continue steadfastly in his efforts to secure an unconditional release of Suu Kyi, and a restoration of inclusive, participatory, democratic discourse and electoral processes in the country.
