The doctor for Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she will be discharged from a Rangoon hospital in a day or two, but it is not clear whether she will remain in government custody.
Doctor Tin Nyo Win told reporters Thursday he intends to be with the 58-year-old opposition leader when she is released, and will accompany her to wherever the military government moves her. Aung San Suu Kyi underwent surgery last week for gynecological problems and other undisclosed ailments.
She has not been allowed to have visitors, and a special envoy from Indonesia who visited Rangoon this week was denied permission to talk to her. Before her surgery, Aung San Suu Kyi had been held in detention since the end of May.
Burma's neighbors in Southeast Asia have been trying to win her release before a regional conference in Bali October seventh.
Thailand's foreign minister met with top Burmese leaders in Rangoon Thursday on a one-day visit to promote the so-called Thai "road map" to democracy. Foreign Minister Surakiart Sathirathai gave no details of his talks.
