UN officials have welcomed the unexpected release of a Burmese political activist known for fighting forced labor in Burma.
Secretary General Kofi Annan and the Special Rapporteur on Burma, Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, both released statements Wednesday - a day after Su Su Nway was let out of Burma's notorious Insein prison.
Pinheiro said Su Su Nway's health has been a cause of concern since she was incarcerated in October 2005.
Both UN officials repeated calls for Burma to release all of its political prisoners.
Su Su Nway told reporters Tuesday that she cannot be happy about her release, because forced labor still exists in Burma.
