"Growing up. As a young woman in the 1960s, angel Suu Kyi toured the globe from the UK to the U.S. and Japan, studying politics and economics. At Oxford, she met her husband, a scholar named Michael aris. They had two sons and settled in the UK. Amid this busy life, Myanmar never left Aung San Suu Kyi's mind. She often told Michael should have to return. In 1988, she finally did. Her mother had suffered a severe stroke and Aung San Suu Kyi returned to take care of her. This was a very different Myanmar than the one she left. A military regime had seized power in 1962. 20 years later, tensions were at a boiling point under its repressive tactics. There were confrontations between police and crowds made up of students, office workers and monks. Thousands of people died. Aung San Suu Kyi fell she found her calling on August 26th, 1988, she gave her first public speech, saying, I could not, as my father's daughter, remain indifferent to all that was going on. Aung San Suu Kyi went on to lead a revolt against the military dictatorship, guided by the ideal of respect as a fundamental part of human dignity. She wrote that it wasn't power that corrupts, but rather fear. The people are not afraid of me. And because they are not afraid of me, they tell me what they think. And the flip side of that is that they are afraid of the current government. Of course. In fact, the dictatorship did fear her coalition's increasing power. They established martial law that banned political meetings and threatened dissidents with prison sentences without trial. Aung San Suu Kyi paid the new rule no mind. She and her collaborators founded the national league for democracy or the NLD, which was dedicated to nonviolence and civil disobedience. Aung San Suu Kyi was one of the only women on the political scene and by far the most powerful. She became known simply as the lady. Also Sochi's peaceful rebellion had its consequences. In 1989, she was placed under house arrest. She spent those years in nearest solitary confinement. She was unable to see her two sons or Michael who eventually died of cancer in 1999. She was invited to see her husband at the end of his life, but Aung San Suu Kyi refused to leave Myanmar out of fear that officials wouldn't allow her back into the country. They attitude was that if I would leave Burma, I would be free anytime. But I was certainly not have left the country and left my colleagues to face their troubles by themselves. In the 1990 elections, the NLD won more than 80% of the legislative seats. The military government did not recognize the results, but around the world leaders had heard of Aung San Suu Kyi's story and took up her fight. In 1991, she won both the coveted Sakura of human rights prize from the European Parliament and the Nobel Peace Prize while under house arrest. In 2008, U.S. president George W. Bush awarded her a congressional gold medal. The Myanmar government continued to prolong the house arrest year after year. Aung San Suu Kyi was finally released on November 13th, 2010. That day, more than 3000 people gathered around her house. When she attempted to speak, she was drowned out by the crowd chanting her name and singing the national anthem. Aung San Suu Kyi began her comeback. On April 1st, 2012, she won a parliamentary seat in Myanmar's first multi party election since 1990. In the following months, she delivered acceptance speeches for the prizes she'd won while under house arrest. And in 2015, Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD won a historic parliamentary majority. However, Aung San Suu Kyi herself couldn't become president. Myanmar's laws prohibit anyone with foreign relatives becoming the nation's leader and both her sons are UK citizens. Instead, the NLD created the role of state counselor. It essentially allowed Aung San Suu Kyi to work as the de facto head of state. The move escalated tensions between the NLD and the top model Myanmar's army. Although Al Sal Suu Kyi's vision of a unified Myanmar might have seemed like it was coming together, a disturbing truth was surfacing. In 2017, under NLD's rule, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya, a Muslim ethnic minority fled the country due to increased violence and deadly attacks from the Myanmar army. This mistreatment stem back to at least the 1970s. These most recent attacks killed an estimated 25,000 rowing of people and wounded tens of thousands more. It caused a refugee crisis displacing more than 700,000 people. The UN called it by name. Ethnic cleansing also Suu Kyi repeatedly denied the claim. It can not be ruled out that disproportionate force was used by members of the defense services in some cases, but these are determinations to be made in the due course of the criminal justice process. Surely under the circumstances, genocidal intent can not be the only hypothesis. Almost immediately, institutions that had held up ansa Suu Kyi as an example rescinded the prizes they had awarded her, including the U.S. Holocaust museum and Amnesty International. Still, Alsace Suu Kyi's party won the majority in the next election in 2020. But on February 1st, 2021, the day the new parliament was set to convene, Myanmar's military launch and other coup. Also Suu Kyi and several other officials were arrested. Today, at 77 years old, also Suu Kyi faces many charges, including election fraud, violating communications laws and corruption. As of 2022, with further court proceedings in front of her, her total jail time amounts to 20 years. For many, also Suu Kyi remains a figure of liberation. For many others, she represents an incomplete picture of democracy of a government unwilling and unequipped to truly represent

"Catherine, what's the state of the Rohingya ethnic minority today? Well, Tom, it may not be entirely fair to say she presided over the atrocities against the Rohingya because the coup has shown us just how constrained her power actually was. She certainly didn't do enough to protect the Rohingya with the power she had and when she went to the International Court of Justice. Where there are proceedings under the genocide convention against Myanmar she did defend the generals. So is that damage to credibility in the eyes of the west? It definitely damaged her credibility in the eyes of the west and we saw calls for her noble Peace Prize to be revoked in Oxford. They were taking down portraits of Aung San Suu Kyi. So she was definitely discredited by her lack of strong stance in protection of the Rohingya, especially given that the west had swung around behind Aung San Suu Kyi during all the years when she was detained by the military under house arrest, et cetera. Since the coup, the situation of the Rohingya has got much worse. 5 years ago, three quarters of a million of them fled across the border to Bangladesh. And there they remain in refugee camps, the world's largest refugee camps. In the camps themselves, there's little work or education, not enough food or medicine and fires keep ripping through the camps. There's still Rohingya in Myanmar as well, of course, more than a 100,000 of them in displacement camps that are just ghettos. They can't leave. There's fighting inside Rakhine state. Between the military and one of the armed ethnic organizations. So there are Hindu are still without citizenship still vulnerable. It's still a despairing situation. The outrage being over these terrible events 5 years ago. Nicholas, I mean, the army supported by local gangs, they went through these Muslim villages, raping, burning, killing along the way, some listeners might say that the west's response was pretty feeble and that it shows that atrocities against voiceless Muslims count for little or nothing across western capitals is that a fair critique Nicholas. Well, I think we need to talk about the world's response to what's happened to the Rohingya in Myanmar, not just what the west's response has been, made the greatest responses come from Bangladesh, which is had as Catherine's mentioned three quarters of a million people pushed into its country. And it's had to host that refugee community, but the response of the rest of the world has also been in terms of providing quite extensive humanitarian assistance through humanitarian agencies and directly to Bangladesh. The organization for Islamic cooperation has led the international push to hold Myanmar to account for this. The Gambia, which has taken the case in the International Court of Justice against Myanmar for crimes against humanity. So to focus on a western response, I think this is the main picture here. Where a lot of the action that has been taken has been by other countries. But the financial support through UN agencies, humanitarian agencies, has of course come from the richer countries that you would expect.

"Run in 2004. Marty's in the deep right field. Back to we'll see you later tonight. But tsuchiya, the son of Japanese immigrants is a baseball fan. Born and raised in Cincinnati, he grew up rooting for the reds. 20 years ago, the reds began hiring him to create sculptures outside the stadium, depicting their local heroes, like Johnny Bench and Pete Rose. And because of that work, Matthews international, the company that produces the plaques for the Hall of Fame, discovered tsuchiya. And offered him the job of plaque maker in 2016. It's going to even like a dream come true because I didn't think it was even something that you know. I always knew as a kid. Someone's making those Hall of Fame plaques. But I never imagined that one day they'll be making them. Of course, it isn't easy. There is a little bit of pressure involved. John Chester coxi at the national baseball Hall of Fame is one of the few people who guide Suu Kyi along the way. You know, when you think about a bronze plaque that will hang on the walls of the plaque gallery of the Hall of Fame, probably the most sacred space in our entire sport, it needs to stand the test of time. To get it right, they begin working as soon as the new inductees are announced. The Hall of Fame sends Suu Kyi a photos of each player so we can study their features. Suu Kyi is sketches the first designs on his computer, and then he does them to scale in clay. Heating up the material so he can work it between his fingers and with his tools

"It easier for civilians to legally buy weapons at a growing number of gun stores. Nowadays, criminal gangs are often better armed than the police. At a news conference, a real vision at a police spokesman Ronaldo Oliveira claimed that officers tried to peacefully arrest gang members, but that they responded with gunfire. There's also political support for such raids. President Bolsonaro, a populist former military officer, is a fierce defender of the police. As he campaigns ahead of October's presidential election, he often talks up what he describes as his robust efforts to fight crime. Bolsonaro brushed off the high number of casualties in the raid. Instead, he told reporters it was a job well done by the military police. John Otis, NPR news, revision error. Sunday in cooperstown New York, the national baseball Hall of Fame will enshrine 7 new members. But Fowler, buck O'Neill, go Hodges, many minoso, Tony oliva, Jim cott, and a more recent star, David Ortiz. Each will be honored with a bronze plaque that will hang in perpetuity in cooperstown. And the unveiling of these plaques on Sunday, it is a big moment. For the players, their families, and also one other person. The artist who made the plaques. Keith O'Brien has the story. There comes a point every spring when Tom Suu Kyi travels everywhere with a small wooden box. It has a gold handle, a latch that locks and a sticker on the side that says national baseball Hall of Fame. But it's the contents that really matter. All the plaques that work on. Keep them in this box. I don't learn about eyesight. Part of it is the secrecy of the project. Only Suu Kyi and a tiny team at the Hall of Fame see the plaques before the induction ceremony. But mostly, Suu Kyi just doesn't want to lose his work. Each one could take 50 hours to make, because he sculpting the faces of the players on them. He needs to capture how they smiled or scowled. He needs to do it in a space that's roughly 5 inches wide by 7 inches tall. It needs to be evocative and perfect, and he's on deadline. Because the date for the induction doesn't change, that doesn't move. And then I don't want to let anyone down. Of course. The work happens here. Behind a large door inside an old textile mill in Cincinnati. This is Suu Kyi's studio, and it's cluttered with old sculptures. He's a full-time artist, and he's done all sorts of work over the years. He's built statues of long forgotten civil rights leaders, and he'll be the first to admit he doesn't know what it's like to be a baseball hero, like slugger David Ortiz was, during the Boston Red Sox, epic playoff run in 2004.

This story was reported by Roy wynberg and bray a California for the monitor. Now commentary from the monitors editorial board, on finding freedom under Myanmar's military. Once a global icon for democracy and human rights, Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced by Myanmar's military on Monday to two years in prison. The charges against the Nobel Peace Prize winner are considered as bogus as the army's claim to rule after a coup against her elected government 9 months ago. Yet with miss Aung San Suu Kyi now again facing a long confinement. She has one thing going for her. Democracy activists in Myanmar know what sustained her throughout the previous period of forced isolation. During the trial, miss Aung San Suu Kyi's fearless demeanor was a reminder of how she endured 15 years under house arrest until her release in 2010. Like other famed prisoners of conscience, she said afterward that fear is the first adversary we have to get past when we set out to battle for freedom and often it is the one that remains until the very end. This idea about a need for personal liberation first builds on a strong legacy of democracy fighters. What stands out are their actions based on their inherent liberation from fear.

"Brought to you by State Farm, like a good neighbor, State Farm is there. Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi sent it to four years in prison following military coup, by Amy gunia. Myanmar's former leader, Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to four years in prison on Monday, after she was found guilty of incitement and violating COVID-19 restrictions following a closed door trial. The prison term covers only the first in a series of charges, which could see Aung San Suu Kyi, who was ousted in a February 1st military coup, sentenced to decades in prison by Myanmar's coup leaders. Human rights watchers say the charges against Aung San Suu Kyi whose national league for democracy or NLD won a November 8th, 2020 election in a landslide are a thinly veiled justification for keeping the popular pro democracy leader behind bars. No one is fooled by today's sentencing, Charles Santiago, the chair of the ASEAN parliamentarians for human rights, a group of liberal lawmakers from Southeast Asian nations, said in a statement after the sentencing. Since the day of the coup, it's been clear that the charges against Aung San Suu Kyi in the dozens of other detained members of parliament have been nothing more than an excuse by the junta to justify their illegal power grab. Aung San Suu Kyi's incitement charge as the result of statements posted on the NLD's Facebook page after she was detained by the military and the coronavirus charge related to a campaign appearance before the election. The country's ousted president win meant was also sentenced to four years in prison on Monday. Several other cases against Aung San Suu Kyi are now being tried, including charges over the alleged unregistered import in use of walkie talkies by her security guards, and corruption. Aung San Suu Kyi, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 and other members of her party were swept up in predawn raids in the February 1st coup, and she has been detained ever since. The military's power grab came after Myanmar's generals complained of fraud in the November election, although international observers did not report major voting irregularities. At the time of the military coup, officials said they were assuming control for one year under emergency powers granted to them in the constitution, but experts warned that the coup seemed likely to undo the country's hard won democratic reforms. The country began a series of democratic reforms in 2011, and its fragile push for democracy had centered around Aung San Suu Kyi. It's not the first time Suu Kyi has been imprisoned by the military. She spent 15 years under house arrest before her release in 2010. This time, it's unlikely Suu Kyi who won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 and was once called a Beacon of hope by former president Barack Obama for her nonviolent resistance against a military law receive as much international support. Suu Kyi's defense of the military's 2017 atrocities against the Rohingya, a mostly Muslim ethnic minority that live in western Myanmar, badly tarnished her international reputation. She is no longer this moral person who has suffered, or who is suffering at the hands of the Burmese military anymore, says mongs Arnie, cofounder of foresee dot co, a group of Southeast Asian scholars that focuses on democratic struggles in the region. Still, Suu Kyi remained popular domestically, and the coup was met with nationwide nonviolent demonstrations, which the military has cracked down on with shocking violence. More than 1300 people have been killed by the military, according to the organization, the assistance association for political prisoners. Opposition to military rule remains strong, and some protesters have taken up arms, joining ethnic minority militias, which have long fault the military. On Sunday, at least three people were reportedly killed in Yangon. Myanmar's largest city. When a military vehicle plowed into a march of peaceful protesters.

But Interpol plays a crucial role in tracking down fugitives and coordinating international sting operations. In recent years, though, allegations of undue influence have been piling up, with growing concern that the institution is beholden to authoritarian regimes. The appointment of a controversial new president isn't helping. The importance of Interpol has actually grown over the past years because crime itself has gotten more globalized. Field is a levski is our turkey correspondent, but he's been doing a little cross border work, too. 80 to 90% of investigations that police chiefs tend to look into have a global or international nature. And it's now got a new boss. The man who has taken over as president of Interpol is a rather controversial figure. He is a former inspector general of the UAE interior ministry. He was elected by secret ballot by Interpol's General Assembly. No, mister Al racy is facing accusations of complicity in torture or abuse in 5 different countries, including, perhaps most importantly, France, where Interpol has its headquarters. He has denied the allegations. So has the UAE, two people that we spoke to for this story, Ali Ahmed and Matt hedges are both UK citizens, alleged that they were tortured in custody in the UAE between 2018 and 2019 and have formally accused mister Al raisi of responsibility. So the top job now belongs not only to a country with a poor human rights record, but to a man accused of torture. So again, mister raisi denies the allegations, but still, how is it that someone facing accusations like that ends up in such a powerful position? The president of Interpol is not that powerful of figure. His is not entirely symbolic post, but it's a post that is significantly less important to the running of Interpol than that of the secretary general. But mister Al ray you see as Interpol's president, is and will be the face of the organization. So his election is a reputational risk already, which can have real consequences. As one Interpol official told me, reputational damage means damage to trust and damage to trust means that countries might be more reluctant to work with each other or to work through Interpol. Still, though important or not as you say there are risks here, it does seem strange to have someone who's under this cloud as they head of the organization. Indeed, and unfortunately, for Interpol, I see is not the first controversial figure to be elected president. Interpol had previously elected Meng Hong Wei a Chinese official as its president. Mister Meng was later detained and sentenced to 13 years in prison for corruption in China. A few presidents earlier, Jackie celebi, South African, president of Interpol, was convicted of taking bribes from a drug trafficker. Now, all of this and other factors have revived concerns that Interpol is coming under the influence of repressive regimes. And what does that influence look like? Or mister Meng can, in fact, be the symbols of this influence, but the real influence that repressive regimes tried to exert on Interpol is to use the organization to get to political opponents, notably by way of red notices, which are issued by Interpol at the request of individual governments, and they are akin to international arrest warrants. And Russia has tried to get red notices for some Kremlin opponents and critics. China has done similar China has had some success in extraditing Uyghur dissidents by way of a red notice or by having different governments arrest them on the basis of a red notice. We have to acknowledge that Interpol has managed to stand its ground on several occasions, but authoritarian governments have actually succeeded on more than a few occasions in using Interpol to track down their critics. So this does not seem aligned with what interval really ought to be doing. How did they get to this point? The most visible problem right now is the election of mister Al racy as president of Interpol. And his election and the election of other officials from authoritarian countries exposes what seems to be a flaw at the heart of the Interpol election system. Elections to top posts are quite opaque, elections are conducted by secret ballot. And formally, candidates to the presidency are only presented at the start of the General Assembly, which is to say, two days before the vote, which critics say prevents proper scrutiny of those running for Interpol president. And all of this makes backroom dealing almost inevitable. And China, in the past, has been known to offer investment and foreign aid to get its candidates elected to post in international institutions. And there is suspicion that the UAE has done something similar to get mister Al AC elected. All of this stuff, as you say, undermines the institution's credibility tarnishes. Its reputation. I mean, what does reform look like to bring it back to what people think Interpol could be? I mean, Interpol has taken some steps to address the issues we've been talking about. They have improved the screening mechanisms for red notices. In addition, Interpol has tightened the eligibility of criteria for members of the executive committee who now have to be active members of their national police forces. But there's certainly work to be done. Voting should certainly be made more transparent. And Interpol might be wise to do away with voting by secret ballot. Some of these concerns are, in fact, resonating among some members of Interpol in her speech at the Interpol General Assembly. The Czech vice president for Europe of Interpol, who was running against mister arasi, said let us show the world that Interpol is not for sale. In what really seems thinly veiled reference to the lobbying efforts by the UAE. Unfortunately, following the vote, the world might have come away with a different conclusion. Peter, thank you very much for joining us. Thank you for having me. Are you tired of all those irksome demands by your government? All that overweening oversight, all that legislation, all that tax, maybe seasteading is for you. Be free by taking to the sea. It's something that libertarian types have long been thinking about, and attempting. But with rising sea levels on the horizon and populations rising with them, life on the water is starting to have far wider appeal. Climate change is making floating cities more of an inviting prospect, but this has been something that some libertarians have dreamt of for years. Elise burr writes about foreign affairs for The Economist. Fans of seasteading talk about setting up self governing hamlets in the ocean, which would charge little or no tax. If you make the ocean an attractive place to live, now all of a sudden people are going to be competing for space. I mean, that's one thing that the sea stutters always say is governments have a monopoly on land, but they don't have a monopoly on the sea. And governments aren't going to like the sound of that. Governments aren't so keen on seasteading because of the tax implications and some of them see it as a violation of sovereignty. For example, in 2019, two people built and lived in a seastead, which was basically just a floating Jack. That was about 12 miles off the coast of Thailand, and the Thai government wasn't having it and towed away the sea said soon after it was built. And the technology isn't quite there for building settlements far away from shallow waters. It's really hard to get supplies and there's less protection from storms far out to sea. So government responses like that suggest that the ideal of this isn't really plausible. Right. Well, seasteading, which is the libertarian movement is still a really long way off. But floating settlements that are within government jurisdictions already exist. They're some in Brunei, Nigeria, around Lagos, and also in Vietnam and Cambodia. But a lot of these are slums. They don't have access to sewage, some don't have electricity. But floating settlements closer to shore could provide opportunities for increasing city space and also adapting to rising sea levels. Some agent countries are trying to encourage this. For example, in November, officials from Busan, which is a port city in South Korea, said that they plan to offer space for floating neighborhood near to its shore. But a floating neighborhood is a very different thing from a floating shack for a couple of people. I mean, is this really possible? It is realistic enough to have an endorsement from the UN habitat, which is the UN agency that deals with urbanization. So oceanics, the company that aims to build and fund this project said it's going to cost around $200 million and have space for around 300 to 500 people. Oceanic really brands this as an alternative to land reclamation. They say it could be economically competitive with land reclamation and it would be better for the environment. And eventually, the hope is that they could link up a bunch of these platforms to house up to 10,000 people, but you're talking about that in a city of three and a half million. And South Korean cities do have a history of backing large infrastructure projects that benefit local industry. The hope is that this one would boost shipbuilders. So with that kind of UN backing with the shipbuilding expertise do you think all of this is going to make a seasteading proper look a little more feasible for the people who want to see more of it? I think for the libertarians that these projects are going to show the sort of technological feasibility of it. I guess there are oil rigs out in the middle of the ocean. It's like, how do you have a libertarian utopia if you need supplies from other countries? I mean, everybody says that the biggest issue surrounding seasteading is the political issue rather than the technological issue. So the project in South Korea would help innovate with the technological issues of building a floating city, but it wouldn't deal with the political issues of having a little utopia in the middle of the ocean. Elise, thanks very much for joining.

"kyi" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"Today, Aung San Suu Kyi, the former civilian leader of Myanmar, was sentenced to four years in prison, found guilty of inciting descent and breaching COVID-19 rules. She's been charged with far more and far worse than that. It's more than a year since miss Suu Kyi's party won an election by a landslide. Just before they could take power, though, the military carried out a coup. Public resistance to that led to a brutal, deadly crackdown that hasn't slowed down. Yesterday, at an anti government protest in Yangon, the country's most populous city, a military vehicle appeared to drive straight into demonstrators. Today's verdict accomplishes just what the ruling junta wants, taking miss Suu Kyi out of active political life, and there's good reason to believe that she will, in the end, be imprisoned for much longer. That seems likely to crystallize opposition to the military, even more. So today the court hearing the trial of Aung San Suu Kyi handed down its first verdicts. And entirely unsurprisingly, it ruled that Suu Kyi was guilty. Charlie McCann is The Economist's Southeast Asia correspondent. Those are just the first two of 11. So she's been charged for a whole litany of crimes from a sort of ludicrously trivial one of possessing unlicensed walkie talkies to much more serious ones like violating the official secrets act, corruption. So Suu Kyi denies all these charges, and it's pretty clear that these charges are trumped up so that the army can sideline her. They claim that the election that her party won in a landslide in November 2020 was one fraudulently. And that was the justification for their coup back in February. So they have every interest in seeing her branded as a crook and if she's convicted of all counts against her suit she will be in jail for a 102 years. Which is, it sounds like what we should expect at this point. Absolutely. The court is supine. They will do the bidding of the military. Beyond that, it's hard to know what's going on in this trial. Journalists have been banned from the court. Suu Kyi's lawyers have been prevented from speaking to the media. So we don't know how she is, what kind of condition she's in. We don't know what a response to the verdict is. And we also don't know whether she's going to be put under house arrest, like she was before or sent to one of Myanmar's notoriously harsh prisons. What about the response of the Burmese people, though? How do you think this verdict will land with them? I think it's likely to anger them after the verdict was announced today. I spoke with doctor sassa, the spokesperson for the national unity government, which is a kind of shadow government formed of exiled parliamentarians. He thinks that the verdict is going to instigate much more resistance. Another level of pain and suffering and that is the Kate in the hearts of the minds of the people of Myanmar just imagine if you're elected presidents or your elected leader of the nation are unfairly treated in that way. That's the same reason why the people of Myanmar were on the street, protesting after fail opposition reigns really strong, despite the horrible violence being meted out to protesters and people in opposition to the coup. More than 1300 people have been killed, some 10,000 people have been arrested since the coup. Yesterday, a military truck rammed into a crowd of protesters and Yangon. It ran over a couple of people, and eyewitnesses said that soldiers then opened fire on fleeing protesters and beating others. 5 people have died from that incident. And yet, despite that in the evening, people went back out into the streets and they kept on protesting. Day after day after day, we see incidents like that where this horrible brutality is being muted out by the military. And yet, the people of Myanmar, they keep on resisting. And is this just a small hardcore of very serious protesters or is the whole country up in arms at this stage? Well, I wouldn't say the whole country is up in arms, but large swaths of the population have decided on violent resistance. So in October, you and expert describe the situation in Myanmar as a Civil War. So since February hundreds of rebel groups have emerged and these range from quite small underground cells operating in cities, two militias in the countryside, that number in the thousands. And of those 250, perhaps 50 are conducting sustained operations. And these guys mean business, right? So these protesters turn guerrillas, operating in the cities, they're planting bombs. They're attacking police stations, military compounds. They're conducting assassinations against low level regime officials. And in the countryside, some of these new militias are getting training for much more established ethnic minority groups. And even fighting the military together. The minority militias in turn, they're seizing the opportunity. The military is deeply embattled and increasingly stretched thin. And so in that sense, this battle between the junta and miss Suu Kyi trying to paint her as a crook is really just one of really many battles going on in the country at the moment. Completely. He's asking minority militias. They're angry, not just with the military, but also with Suu Kyi, who they feel basically ignored and belittled them while she was in power. So while the guilty verdict won't mean much to them, it will mean a lot to the many Burmese who continue to idolize her. Doctor sasse, the NEG spokesperson, I spoke to, he really thinks that violence is going to ratchet up. But the people of Myanmar have say enough is enough. It's a do or die. If we do not overthrow them, we all would die very simple. So it's a where do you think this is going? These are just the first of what will be many verdicts that we're to expect will again be guilty. So she is going to be deemed guilty again and again and again. We're going to have a sort of a study drum beat of convictions. That's just going to pour a fuel on the fire of this conflict. Neither side has the ability to prevail currently as the conflict is kind of currently constituted. And so I just think the short term, Myanmar is going to spiral into this cycle of oppression and violence. The junta extraordinarily optimistically has scheduled a new poll for 2023. But if it really understood the public and what it thinks about the current political situation, it would know that it has no chance of winning that election. People's lives have manifestly gotten worse since the coup. 200,000 people at least have been displaced since last February. The World Bank thinks that growth this year is going to contract by a whopping 18% and the bad statistics just keep on rolling in. The UN thinks that nearly half the population is going to be below the poverty line next year. And to make matters even worse, the person who embodied the hopes of the Burmese.

"And the tie in to children is that I read these because I got them for my teenage daughter who is in a thriller phase. And I grabbed a bunch of thrillers from the office and brought them home for her. And now I'm reading her cast off. So she's already read these. And it's funny because when I ask her what they're about, she's like, oh, I don't know, I don't remember. Suu Kyi inherited that for me. I can barely remember what either of these books are about. And I read them within the last month. But they are the flight attendant by Chris bajillion and perfect little children by Sophie Hannah. They're very different, although there's some commonalities. And I remember actually asking you, probably around four or 5 years ago you'd review the book by Sophie Hannah in the times and I was like, oh, I've never read Sophie Hannah and I think I asked you for some advice. And it wasn't this book, because I think this may be her most recent one. And it has a very creepy little thing on the cover that says 12 years have passed. So why don't Thomas and Emily look a day older? I mean, that's the kind of central mystery it's about a woman who goes back to see her ex best Friends house. And sees her ex best friend there, they haven't talked in a number of years. 12 years. And she is sitting in her car outside her the house, the ex best friend and two little children pop out looking exactly like Thomas and Emily, but at the same age they were when the friendship fell apart. And so you are wondering what has happened is this some kind of cloning thing? Is it some crazy secret plot? Is the narrator crazy, which I feel like there's where you have something in common with the other book, the flight attendant. And with almost every other kind of domestic or psychological thriller, your intended to ask, like, is the person telling us this story crazy or am I? Someone must be somehow not getting it. The flight attendant really different book is about Cassandra bowden, who is a flight attendant and an alcoholic. And it sort of is kicked off when she wakes up in a hotel room in Dubai next to someone she's been out with flirting and having fun with and the guy is in her bed dead. I hate it when that happens. I'd just like to interject. To you or just generally in a book. Well, you know, when you have a one night stand and they're dead in the morning. It's really insulting is what it is. It's like, really, was it that? No. Yeah, but I actually love that. You know, that sort of premise, which, of course, is the premise for many a thriller. And I had never read a book by Chris bojan. He's a really good writer. You know, it's commercial, but it's smart, commercial, smart, thriller, stuff, you know, and funny speaking of dostoevsky. I can't remember if just yev in here, but there's a lot of Russian literature, I think there's definitely Tolstoy. There's a kind of intelligence assumed on the part of the reader that I found gratifying. It's definitely not lowest common denominator reading. The Sophie Hannah is.

I mean, if you look at the number for Australia on the manufacturing side of reading of 57.2 all the way up from 55. 0.7 in the month of December. Now the China numbers relative to market expectations were disappointing, but you haven't official manufacturing PM I now at 51 3. And on nonmanufacturing. PM I at 52. I'm sorry. That's the composite. The composite is 52.8. So in both cases, the numbers wild below expectations are above 50. So it implies that there is still some expansion going on. We're going to get the private survey for China. In a little while from now And then, if you look at the trade data for South Korea exports up 11.4% the chip sector alone with an increase of 21.7%.

This is Bloomberg. I'm learning how to say my name all over again. It's Edward Baxter. Thanks it alright, very much on. I'm Juliet Sally in Singapore. We have speaking to reach it. Howrah, CEO of Port Shelter Investment Management on the line for us from Hong Kong, Richard, We're talking about the balance here between economies staying open and, of course containing the virus, and I wanted to get your thoughts to as to what you were saying. Here is that long term It looks like authorities have destroyed the financial system. We know 2020 was all about a lot of stimulus. Well, that's right. You know, we've seen a next ordinary amount of money. The money tree is being shaken some laps. It's almost got no loose on it on. You have to wonder whether Or what That amount of liquidity is going to do in the future. But I also get a sense that there's a growing disquiet, you know, populations could only be locked down for so long. So the Western countries on there is more of a clamor for opening up the economy because in a sense Well, there we have a medical pandemic. We've also got on economic pandemic some kind of economy Temic because we've got now the economies which are so sick that they have to be supported by Millions of public money in certain areas. We're losing airlines for losing major chunks of the economies of the moment on bats, all gonna have to be rebuilt after the event. Exactly And at the same time we're also looking at geopolitical concerns. We do have a new presidency in the US, But of course, the old concerns don't necessarily dissipation. What's your thought on how we'll see a relationship between President she and President Biden. Well, I think you know, it'll probably changed the previously It's being personally very poor. I think Biden and she, of course and no known each other for a decade or so. They were vice presidents together, So on a personal basis, they may get on rather better. But you know, the Democrats and I think, by the in particular are particularly concerned about A human rights issue, and they're not in a mood to let that go s so I think that relations will still remain difficult. The bottom line, though, is that if you're looking at the supply chain just supply chains of pretty tight You know, these guys need to trade with each other. America has a demand. China has a supply. They are both dependent on each other economically, And I don't think that you can Really look at the higher level and said, because it was a difficult there that we're going to see any real relaxation in the trade relationship. Exactly All right, let's have a look. A swell of what we're saying in terms off the vaccine roller more globally because there has been concerns about what's happening in Europe. You're talking about the lockdown. So there you're saying not surprising, well behind the game here. Well, the thing is that the low hanging fruit the easy way to get out of it is for people to have the the injection. The Japs on People being vaccinated, you know, unearthing the students and cases, but the vaccinations will start taking over. That's the easy it If you don't have that easy excuse, Of course, you're going to feel behind the line, and I think the European commissioners found itself under intense political pressure. Maybe not acting early..
