Suu Kyi to finally give her Nobel lecture

NORWAY: More than two decades after she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will finally be free to give her long-awaited Nobel lecture in Oslo on Saturday.

"It is without a doubt one of the great moments in Nobel history," the current head of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Thorbjoern Jagland, told AFP.

"For these 21 years, Aung San Suu Kyi has shown that it was not only justified to award her the prize but she has also shown herself to be a moral leader for the whole world. Even though she spent most of this time in isolation, her voice became increasingly heard." On October 14, 1991, the Nobel Committee announced it had awarded the Peace Prize to Suu Kyi "for her non-violent struggle for democracy and human rights," propelling the petite democracy champion onto the global stage.

Suu Kyi was under house arrest at the time. AFP
