A senior official from the party of Myanmar’s detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi has said he has learned that her health is good and that she was not being moved from the location where she is being held after a military coup against her government.
The whereabouts and condition of Myanmar’s elected leader have not been made public since she was arrested in the capital, Naypyidaw, by the military during Monday’s power grab
“There is no plan to move Daw Aung San Su Kyi and Doctor Myo Aung. It’s learned that they are in good health,” Kyi Toe, a member of the National League for Democracy’s (NLD) central information committee, said in a Facebook post which also referred to one of her allies.
It was not immediately clear how Kyi Toe had obtained the information.
He also posted that NLD members of parliament arrested during the coup were being allowed to leave the quarters where they had been held.
We were informed not to worry. However, we are worrying. It will be a relief if we can see a photo,” he told AFP news agency.
Yangon-based analyst Khin Zaw Win said it appeared Aung San Suu Kyi was safe for now.
“All reports indicate she is not in danger,” he said.
