You will know that Aung San Suu Kyi is is Europe at the moment. What you may not know is that our very own Reg Pyne has been invited to Dublin as part of a small Amnesty delegation, to be present when she is presented, by Bono, with Amnesty's most prestigious honour, the Ambassador of Conscience award.
This is a great honour for our group and particularly for Reg, who has worked relentlessly for many years for the release of our adopted Prisoners of Conscience and for human rights in Burma in general and has headed our group's work on Burma.
He flies out to Dublin tomorrow, Sunday, and we all wish him well and look forward to hearing all about this wonderful event when he returns.
Meanwhile keep an eye on those news bulletins
