The Nobel Peace Prize winner has been detained for 15 of the past 21 years.
The PM said:
This is long overdue. Aung San Suu Kyi is an inspiration for all of us who believe in freedom of speech, democracy and human rights.
Her detention was a travesty, designed only to silence the voice of the Burmese people.
Freedom is Aung San Suu Kyi’s right. The Burmese regime must now uphold it.
