‘My doctor will come to me every day to do a check-up’, Win Tin told Mizzima.  ‘I had ultrasound scans. All of my organs are in good condition. My heart pacemaker is also working properly’, he said.

Currently, Win Tin, 81, is resting at his home in Kyaukkon in Rangoon. He is taking medicine for his heart and asthma condition.

‘As soon as my health improves, I will go to the party office. I need to work’, he said. ‘But, it’s not time to go to the office right now because I don’t want to lean on other people. To go to the office, at least I need to be able to walk with my walking stick without the help of other people. I think my health will improve within five days’.

He said that he did not plan to accompany Aung San Suu Kyi on her proposed tour of the country in a few months. It will be Suu Kyi’s first tour of the country since she was released from house arrest.
