Defense team for Suu Kyi rests

July 29, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

The defense team for Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi delivered its final arguments, closing the case days ahead of a verdict the Nobel Peace Prize laureate softly said would be "painfully obvious."

The trial has drawn international condemnation, but the ruling junta appeared determined to find her guilty.

Suu Kyi faces a possible five years in prison on charges that she violated the terms of her house arrest by harboring an uninvited American man who swam to her lakeside home and stayed for two days.
