3 January 2008
Original report by Maung Too, DVB

Ma Su Su Nwe, who was arrested while sticking posters in front of Mya Yeit Nyo Hotel, Rangoon and Ma Lay Lay Mon, the 8888 generation student were both put in solitary confinement in Insein prison where they have been detained, it is learnt.

Both ladies, who are suffering from heart disease, are in poor health according to internal information. Sister of Ma Su Su Nwe said, 'We have learnt that the girls have been in isolation, and are given only one meal a day. None of the parcels (personal packages sent to prisoners by family) have been received.'

Lay Lay Mon was due to appear before court but she was not taken out from her isolation cell. ( Ko Bo Bo Win Hlaing, who was arrested together with Ma Su Su Nwe on 14 Novermber, has also been denied a family visit.)

Ma Khin Sanda Win, a student from Daw Pone, who was arrested on 12 October is also in bad health. She has been placed in the same cell with women, who have been charged with offences related to prostitution.

'Ma Khin Sanda Win's situation is not very good. She suffers from headaches probably as a result of a head indury sustained in a car accident. She has had an X-ray test only.' said an anonymous informant.

Ma Mee Mee, Ma Nobel Aye, Ma Sanda Min aka Shwii all of who are 8888 generation students,
Daw Khin Aye and Daw Myint Thein, both NLD members and
Daw Khin Mar Cho of Burmese Housewives Union are all still remanded in custody.

Out of about 1800 political prisoners, who have been detained in prisons throughout the country, there are over 100 ladies, according to AAPP records.
