Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on the release of Aung San Suu Kyi

"I am pleased that Aung San Suu Kyi has finally been released from house arrest in Burma.  She is an unwavering champion of peace, democracy and respect for human rights in Burma, despite being held in detention for 15 of the past 21 years. 
Neither her trial nor appeal process were conducted in line with international standards.  She was not granted due process and should never have been detained."
