People of Myanmar 'denied again'

Ex-UN envoy tells Al Jazeera he expects little change in the military-ruled country.

    Myanmar has enacted legislation that bans Aung San Suu Kyi, the opposition leader held under house arrest for 14 years, from standing in upcoming elections.

    Razali Ismail, a former UN special envoy to Myanmar, told Al Jazeera he was unsurprised by the move.

    Ismail played a key role in securing Suu Kyi's brief release from house arrest in 2002, but he resigned from his position in December 2005 after repeatedly being refused entry to the country.

    He spoke to Al Jazeera's Teymoor Nabili.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
