Lawyers meet Aung San Suu Kyi over her residential plot case

Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – Daw Aung San Suu Kyi met her four legal counsels today afternoon to discuss the case relating to the sale of a part of her residential plot.

Her lawyers Kyin Win, Nyan Win, Hla Myo Myint and Khin Htay Kywe discussed the case with her in Insein prison for over two and-a-half hours. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi explained to her lawyers the background of the case and the ownership of the residential plot.

“We mainly discussed the case over her residential plot. In brief, Daw Suu said that her younger brother had no right to sell the plot. He cannot sell this part of the plot on his own or on her behalf, which is in the physical possession of Daw Suu. She said that she would take necessary action in consultation with her lawyers if such a situation arises,” her lawyer Nyan Win told Mizzima.

“We sent an objection letter ‘as per instruction given by client’ on July 30 to two higher grade pleaders, Cho The May and Wai Wai Aung, which says the sale of the plot is unlawful. But we have not yet received any reply from the two women lawyers”, Nyan Win said.

In the classified advertisement column in ‘The Mirror’ on July 24, a notice appeared which said some parts of a plot situated on No. 54, University Avenue had been sold and anyone can object to the sale within  a week.

The notice said their client Khin Maung Aye had sold the undivided part measuring (100’x70’) of Bahan Township, Plot No. 40 A, 41, 42 A, 44 B, 44 C and 64 C and anyone can send his/her objection to them within seven days.

Khin Maung Aye is the adopted son of late Thakin Than Tun and Daw Khin Gyi, who was a retired army officer and writer. Daw Aung Suu Kyi’s mother Daw Khin Kyi and Daw Khin Gyi were sisters.

In the year 2000, her elder brother Aung San Oo filed a suit for taking possession of this plot from her.

Meanwhile the co-accused in her case, the American Mr. John William Yettaw, collapsed and fell in Insein prison on July 4.  He was admitted to Rangoon General Hospital but now he has improved, a person close to his lawyer Khin Maung Oo said.

It is learnt that the junta will hold a press conference at Hanthawady Narcotic Drug Museum tomorrow at 2 p.m., where a briefing on Mr. Yettaw will take place.
