Su Su Nway's appeal rejected

Nov 24, 2005 (DVB) - A panel of judges at Rangoon Division court, on 24 November, rejected an appeal lodged on behalf of Burmese human rights activist Su Su Nway who is being detained at the notorious Rangoon Insein Jail. The rejection came after National League for Democracy (NLD) lawyers submitted a revised appeal which argued that 34-year old Su Su Nway was wrongfully imprisoned to her detriment.
The lawyers are planning to lodge an appeal at the High Court. Su Su Nway was sentenced to a total of 20 months in prison on 13 October by Rangoon Kawmoo Township court, having successfully sued her local authorities at Htan Manaing over forced labour practices in 2004.
