Su Su Nway on Hunger Strike

Source: Democratic Voice of Burma

Sources told DVB that anti-junta activist Su Su Nway is currently on hunger strike in custody. She was arrested on Tuesday for putting up anti-government posters at the MyaYeikNyo Hotel in Bahan Township. Along with her, NLD member Bo BO Win Hlaing, and the driver of the taxi she was riding in, were also taken into custody.

The taxi driver has been identified as a 60 year old man named U Khin Soe. The taxi has also been impounded, said a source close to the family.

A fellow taxi driver told DVB that the man has never been involved in the politics, and that on that day, the taxi has been hired by Su Su Nway to go to the airport. When the taxi stopped at MyaYeikNyo, a scuffle has broke out at the hotel, and he was instructed to drive off. He was arrested the next day on his way home.
