    Arrow Myanmar court delays Suu Kyi verdict

    The Myanmar court delays its verdict in opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's trial until Aug. 11.

    A Myanmar court Friday postponed its verdict in the internationally condemned trial of Aung San Suu Kyi until August 11, adding to uncertainty over the ruling junta's plans for the democracy icon.

    Lawyers for the Nobel laureate said the judges announced they needed time to review the case, in which Suu Kyi faces up to five years in jail on charges of violating her house arrest after an American swam to her lakeside home.

    "I believe they really have serious legal problems," her lawyer Nyan Win told reporters after the brief court hearing at Yangon's notorious Insein prison.
    "I do not want to say anything regarding politics. But could it be because of pressure from the the UN or others? We do not know exactly but there might be something," he added.
