U Win Tin, former journalist, writer and founding member of the NLD, was arrested in 1989 because of his political activities and close association to Aung San Suu Kyi. He was jailed for 19 years in Insein prison, mostly in solitary confinement. His sentence was increased whilst in prison when he secretly published anti-government propaganda. He was released in 2008 and despite his age, he still works as a CEC member of the NLD in Rangoon, working endlessly for the release of political prisoners. He wears a blue shirt every day (like the prison uniform) to remind people of those still incarcerated.
