“I deeply regret that my special request to meet Daw Aung San Suu Kyi wasnot granted. I had requested specifically to meet Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in advanceof my mission. Nonetheless this meeting did not take place. I am disappointed thateven this time I was not able to see her in this crucial time of the election year, whichwill be the first national elections in 20 years. Her role in the elections will be criticalfor the coming elections to be seen as credible,” UN Human Rights SpecialRapporteur Tomas Ojea Quintana told newsmen at the press conference held at theRangoon International Airport this evening just before he boarded the plane forBangkok.
 
“If granted my meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi would have been positiveindication of the Burma government’s willingness to engage with the internationalhuman rights system,” said Quintana in despair.
 
“Anyhow during my talks with government authorities I have repeatedlyrequested to release Daw Aung San Suu Kyi immediately from her house arrest,”Quintana further told the press.
 
“Despite anticipation of landmark elections this year, I have not received anyindication that the military government is willing to release all prisoners ofconscience. The military government does not accept that there are any prisoners ofconscience in Burma,” Quintana continued to explain to the press.
