Yangon: Myanmar`s detained opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, will be released from house arrest in November, a government minister told a recent gathering of local officials, according to two people who attended the meeting.
Home Minister Major General Maung Oo told the January 21 meeting that Suu Kyi would be freed in November, a month after many observers expect the country to hold its first Parliamentary Elections in two decades.
The information could not be independently verified but the two people who attended the meeting said, requesting anonymity, that the comment was made before an audience of several hundred people in Kyaukpadaung, a town about 350 miles north of the former capital, Yangon.
