I expect the generals will let her out after they’ve installed their ‘guided democracy’ later this year. They’re probably feeling very positive about their prospects after watching what happened in Perak.

As a wise man is alleged to have remarked: “All it takes for evil to triumph is for the slightly less uncharitable to migrate.”

I’m sorry your article didn’t get a better response. So is she, I imagine.
