On Aung San Suu Kyi's birthday, her son Kim said that he wanted to wish her in person

On Aung San Suu Kyi's birthday, her son Kim said that he wanted to wish her in person.


On June 19th, Aung San Suu Kyi's 78th birthday, Aung San Suu Kyi's younger son, Kim Eric, called on the military council to release all political prisoners, including her mother, and return power to a democratically elected government.




This time next year, he wants to meet and wish for his mother's happy birthday. In her birthday speech, Ko Htein Lin said that he hopes his mother knows that his thoughts are with her.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's son's birthday wishes for his mother were broadcast through the National League for Democracy NLD's social network Facebook page.



Aung San Suu Kyi has not been in contact with her son since her arrest. He said that he was not allowed to know the whole situation of his mother, including the place of detention. Ko Htein Lin also said that although he directly contacted the Burmese embassies in London, there was no actual response.


He pointed out that all the accusations against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi by the military council are lies and the investigations are not in accordance with legal procedures. Like his mother, many Myanmar citizens are also being violated as well.



He also said that the military council should realize that the first step to a peaceful country is to release his mother.


The military council will never win the current war, the youth of Myanmar will not accept that their freedom has been taken away, and the ethnic groups who have been fighting for decades will not lose their hard-earned progress, said Ko Htein Lin.


He said he also appealed to governments around the world to start applying meaningful pressure on military dictators. He also pointed out that ambassadors of Britain and other countries should leave Myanmar and have an open meeting with the NUG.

Asean countries also hope to see the need for a democratically elected government in Burma to ensure regional stability and free trade.


Kim said that Japan and India's ignorance of the military dictatorship is disappointing because it seems like they are supporting the junta for various reasons.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's younger son Kim Eric (aka Ko Htein n Lin) also called for the release of his mother and political prisoners at a protest against military rule in front of the Myanmar Embassy in London last May 6th.
