In her first public comments about Myanmar’s ongoing anti-regime resistance movement since last year, the country’s ousted leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has said she was proud of young Burmese people and all those struggling to defend and fight for democracy. She shared the message via her Australian former economic adviser, Sean Turnell, who was released by the regime three weeks ago after spending 650 days in prison. Turnell relayed what Daw Aung San Suu Kyi told him in an interview with News 10, an affiliate of US network ABC, earlier this week. He said he saw Suu Kyi about eight weeks ago when they were sentenced. She asked Turnell to tell everyone the truth about Myanmar. The detained State Counselor said “We have been silenced, but you can tell,” according to Turnell. “She also expressed how proud she was, especially of the young Burmese people. She was really proud of how the people were prepared to defend and fight for democracy, even though their exposure to democracy was very brief,” Turnell told News 10 ABC, reports The Irrawaddy.
