Speaking to a group of about 200 young people from across the country at the National League for Democracy (NLD) headquarters in Bahan Township in Rangoon, she said that young people should point out the weaknesses of the country’s judicial system in order to help restore law and order.

‘We need to try to restore the country’s law and order by noting its weaknesses’, Ohn Kyaing, an NLD spokesman, quoted Suu Kyi as saying.

Young activists from Irrawaddy, Magway and Sagaing divisions and Mon and Karen states attended the meeting, in which they discussed various unlawful acts of the courts in Burma and what could be done about it.

The young people also discussed various issues with Suu Kyi including social work, education, the difficulties of access to clean water and potential conscription in the armed forces.

Suu Kyi will meet with young people again on Wednesday, party officials said.
