Stephen Tan Ban Cheng pays tribute to Aung San Suu Kyi and explains why this woman of courage richly deserves the Nobel Peace Prize she was awarded.

Yesterday was Aung San Suu Kyi’s 64th birthday but this occasion was not celebrated by her or the people of Burma. All the people of Burma were waiting for her release at the end of May 2009 – the day that would bring about change to the future of the people of Burma. Aung San Suu Kyi was going to have power but Burma’s military junta would never allow this to happen in order to sustain its power. Despite her release, she was arrested again and faces five to seven years imprisonment, observes Merhrom.
