88 Generation leader Nilar Thein arrested

Sep 11, 2008 (DVB)–Nilar Thein, one of the leaders of the 88 Generation Students group who had been in hiding from government authorities since last year, was arrested last night at a house in Rangoon’s Yankin township.

She took part with other 88 generation leaders in the peaceful march in August last year to protest against the military regime’s doubling of fuel prices.

When the authorities began cracking down on protestors, arresting many of her colleagues, Nilar Thein left her month-old baby daughter with her in-laws and went into hiding.

Nilar Thein’s husband Kyaw Min Yu (also known as Ko Jimmy) is being detained in Insein prison with other student leaders.

Chiang Mai – Prominent woman activist Nilar Thein, who went into hiding one year ago, was hunted down and arrested on Wednesday.

An 88 generation student, who requested not to be named, told Mizzima that Nilar Thein was arrested by Burmese security forces on Wednesday evening while going to visit fellow activist Ant Bwe Kyaw’s mother in Rangoon’s Yan Kin Township.

“It is confirmed that she was arrested while going to visit the mother of Ant Bwe Kyaw,” the 88 generation student, who is also on the run from the junta, told Mizzima.

However, it is still unclear how Nilar Thein was arrested and where she is being detained.

But, the 88 student said it is possible that Nilar Thein was arrested on her way to see Ant Bwe Kyaw’s mother, who resides alone and is reportedly in ill health.

Nilar Thein went into hiding as the junta brutally cracked down on protestors in Rangoon and other cities last August and September, leaving her young baby with family members.

Nilar Thein’s husband, Kyaw Min Yu, also a member of the 88 generation students, was arrested on August 21, 2007 along with 12 colleagues, including prominent student leader Min Ko Naing as well as Ko Ko Gyi, Min Zeya, and Mya Aye.

Burmese security forces have reportedly hunted down and arrested the prominent woman activist Nilar Thein, who went into hiding one year ago.

Aung Tun, brother of jailed activist Ko Ko Gyi, told The Irrawaddy on Thursday that Nilar Thein was arrested on Wednesday, but he could provide no further details. Another, unnamed activist said she was seized as she moved hiding places.

Nilar Thein went into hiding, leaving her young baby with family members, as police and troops rounded up participants in the mass demonstrations in Rangoon and other cities last August and September.

Nilar Thein’s husband, Kyaw Min Yu, also known as Jimmy, was arrested on August 21, 2007, along with 12 other leaders of the 88 Generation Students group, including Ko Ko Gyi, Min Ko Naing, Htay Win Aung, Min Zeya and Mya Aye. They had led a demonstration on August 19 against sharp increases in the price of fuel and other commodities.

Nilar Thein had already served two terms of imprisonment in Insein and Tharrawaddy prisons for her involvement in political activities.

In March, she and two of her colleagues—Su Su Nway and Phyu Phyu Thin—received the Czech Republic’s Homo Homini award for their promotion of democracy, human rights and nonviolent solutions to political conflicts.
