Red Cross Meets With Detained Burmese Opposition Members - 2003-07-03


Red Cross officials say they have recently met with dozens of Burmese opposition leaders detained by the country's military government.

A spokesman for the International Committee of the Red Cross, Michel Ducreaux, says Red Cross delegates met and registered the names of at least 30 people detained following a May 30th clash between pro-democracy activists and government supporters.

Mr. Ducreaux said the delegates did not meet with pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. But he said the Red Cross hopes to have access to the Nobel peace laureate soon.

Burma's military government has said Aung San Suu Kyi is being held in "protective custody" and will be released soon, but it would not say when.

Meanwhile, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations says it is waiting for Indonesia, which is set to chair the organization, to propose any further action to pressure Burma to release Aung San Suu Kyi.

ASEAN last month urged Burma's military government to release the Nobel laureate.
