Myanmar's military government late on Tuesday extended the house arrest of Tin Oo, the deputy leader of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi's party, despite calls by the party and international community to release him.
Officials from the Home Ministry visited the house of Tin Oo on Tuesday evening to read out the order extending his house arrest, according to a relative who did not want to be named for fear of government reprisal.
Tin Oo is vice chairman of Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy party, and has been in detention since May 2003.
