Some Burmese were skeptical on yesterday’s closed door trial of Daw Suu, sources told. They were more outraged when they read the news of the court room’s procession of 20th May on yesterday’s state run media.

Some readers were upset when the junta’s press reported that the prosecuting lawyers raised the fact on the two woman dresses with head hoods similar to Muslim woman dress confiscated by the police from the American intruder swam from the Inya Lake to Daw’s Suu residence. It was followed by the confirmation from the Police Officer, Tin Zaw Tun that if the dresses were put on with the sun glasses as demonstrated by the prosecuting lawyer, he won’t be able to recognized anyone inside the dress.

“Now the government is trying to frame Daw Suu and her colleagues. They were trying to accuse that she was planning to run away from the house arrest by disguising herself with the help of this foreigner. It is a wicked evil plot.”
