Burmese Junta Sr.Gen.Than Shwe needs immediate medical treatment in Singapore.
It was learnt from Nay-Pyi-Taw inner sources that Sr.Gen.Than Shwe was serious ill and arranging for further medical treatment in Singapore. He will arrive from Nay-Pyi-Taw to Yangon tomorrow (3/10/2008) and then to Singapore Saturday (4/10/2008) as tentatively planned. Probably his condition is quite serious that he can’t go straight to Singapore but stopover in Yangon for a while.
