Relatives blocked from attending NLD member’s funeral

Jan 9, 2009 (DVB)–Two sons and a daughter in law of the late National League for Democracy member Hlaing Aye, who are currently being detained in Insein prison, were refused permission to attend his funeral on Thursday.

Hlaing Aye, a member of Hlaing Tharyar township NLD’s organising wing, passed away on Tuesday in Rangoon at the age of 70.

NLD information wing member Nyan Win said Hlaing Aye’s two sons Thant Zin Oo and Thant Zin Myo, and daughter-in-law Hla Hla Maw were denied permission to attend the funeral by prison authorities.

The funeral was organised by Hlaing Aye's youngest son and his relatives.

It was attended by about 200 people, including NLD members from Rangoon and Hlaing Aye’s colleagues.

Nyan Win said the authorities had deployed heavy security near the cemetery while the funeral took place.
