Witness told that road blocks around the home of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi where she was held house arrest were seen extended to wider parameters just before the Thagyan celebration. At the west side, the road block was moved to Thanlwin intersection and at the east, at Kabaraye Pagodaw Road junction.
“It was blocked in front of the monastery near her house but later this afternoon, the moved the road block near to “Lolane” madat, a water festival performance stage” told one Burmese young man who was one of the builders of stage near “Inyar Lake” on University Avenue where Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s home located.
During her last 20 years in Burma, she was placed under house arrest for 14 years so that there’s only 6 times that she could witness Burmese New Year Celebration of Burma freely.
