4 year old in jail

Myanmar jails child of activist
Ei Po Po may be youngest detainee
excerpt from article:

"At the Myanmar Embassy in Ottawa, a staff member who would not give her name said yesterday no embassy officials were in the office to answer questions about Ei Po Po's fate.

At Myanmar's Washington, D.C., embassy, a staff member, who refused to give his name, told The Star, "We don't know anything about this."

Officers in the political section were in a meeting, he said.

And at the Myanmar Mission to the United Nations in New York, no spokespersons were available.

"Everybody is in a meeting," an aide said. "

All of them afraid to speak and give their names?!
And Aung San Suu Kyi has been given another year of house detention.

"Why didn't you say something at the time?" someone called out as Krushchev spoke, detailing the abuses of Stalin.
"Who said that?" asked Krushchev, at the microphone.
Dead silence.
"You see why I did not speak out," continued Krushchev.

One day Burma will be only moderately unhappy.
