Welcoming the release of Myanmar activist Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest, Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan hoped the world community would persuade the military junta to restore her liberties in full.

In a media statement, Dr. JP said that like Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Aung San Suu Kyi has displayed indomitable courage and boundless compassion, although most of the world had forsaken her.

She refused to yield to bitterness and hatred although she had to spend 15 of the past 21 years under house arrest because of her fight for democracy.
