New Zealander among 34 political prisoners pardoned in Myanmar

YANGON – Myanmar pardoned more than 100 prisoners Friday, including a new Zealander and 34 others jailed on political fees, officials said, days earlier than a ancient political transition to be able to see Aung San Suu Kyi’s professional-democracy birthday party take power.

The move comes after a US envoy entreated the quasi-civilian government last week to free all closing political prisoners prior to the new parliament convenes next month.
