Tun Lin Kyaw, former bodyguard of Aung San Suu Kyi and political prisoner from BurmaAdd to Lightbox Download
Tun Lin Kyaw, a former member of NLD youth and Tri-Colour Student Group, lived with Aung San Suu Kyi from an early age after his parents died. In 2004 he performed a solo protest outside City Hall in Rangoon, demanding the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners. He was arrested and spent 3 years in Insein prison. During interrogation he was badly tortured and had to have half of his lung removed. He was released from prison to receive emergency medical care but was re-arrested once he left hospital to serve the rest of his sentence. He fled Burma and is now a refugee in Umpiem Mai camp on the Thai-Burma border.
Aung Aung Oo, a student friend of Tun Lin Kyaw was arrested in March 2006 and was sentenced to 14 years in prison for his underground political activities. He was released under a Presidential Amnesty in January 2012
