Suu Kyi angers supporters

world Updated: Mar 12, 2013 23:29 IST

Opponents of a nearly $1bn copper mine in north-western Burma have expressed outrage over a government-ordered report that said the project should continue and that refrained from demanding punishment for police involved in a violent crackdown on protesters.

The opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, chaired the investigation commission that produced the report, which was released late on Monday night.

It could pose a problem for Aung San Suu Kyi by identifying her with the pro-growth policies of the government against the interests of grass-roots people’s movements.
