Aung San Suu Kyi's Trial Extended

Hosted by

On trial in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi faces up to five years in prison in a case that the international community says is bogus. Lawyers in Rangoon wrapped up their closing arguments today and prosecutors will present theirs on Monday. The Nobel Peace Prize-winner is charged with violating house arrest because an American man swam to her lakeside home earlier this year. The trial has dragged on for more than two months, and a guilty verdict is considered likely. Min Zin, a teaching fellow at the University of California-Berkeley, has worked with Suu Kyi in Burma.
