Su Su Nway, a member of the NLD, is one of the most prominent human rights and labour activists in Burma. In 2005 she won an historic legal victory against the junta's long-standing practice of forced labour. However, the outcome also saw her jailed for 9 months in Insein prison. In August 2007 she played a key role in leading protests against the regime and despite going into hiding was finally arrested and sentenced to 8 years in prison. She was released from Hkamti prison under amnesty in October 2011.
