FREEDOM FORUM AWARDS $1 MILLION PRIZE TO BURMESE OPPOSITION LEADER
"Aung San Suu Kyi was selected to receive the award for her free-spirited, non-violent struggle for human rights and democracy," Freedom Forum said. The foundation added that the money was a "personal gift" which "she is free to use... as she sees fit and in any way she wants to." The award will be formally presented on 20 March to Suu Kyi's son Alexander Aris, who will accept it on her behalf.
