Myanmar Update: Suu Kyi Sentenced

The AP reports that “Myanmar sentences Suu Kyi to more house arrest” of 18 months.  That effectively means she will be out of sight during elections to be staged by the junta next year.  She has been detained for 14 years of the past 2 decades.

She was originally sentenced to 3 years with hard labor.  It was commuted by the military junta.

John Yettaw, her uninvited visitor, was sentenced to 7 years hard labor.  He suffers from epilepsy, and he was returned to prison after a stay in the hospital.

This is a reminder that evil regimes still exist in the world.  However, God is still performing a small work in the region, in spite of severe opposition to Christianity in general.
