The rights organization Human Rights Watch said it’s "unlikely" the trial that begins Monday in Myanmar against deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi is fair and demanded her "immediate and unconditional release."

Phil Robertson, the organization’s deputy director in Asia, criticized in a statement Suu Kyi's restrictions on having access to her lawyers and the trial taking place in the capital, Naypyitaw, in a court controlled by the junta, by which she "is unlikely to receive a fair trial." EFE
