'Happy with unconditional release'

 “There was no condition on her release. She is completely free,” said Nyan Win.
Ahead of her release, observers had feared Myanmar’s junta would try to put restrictions on the movements of their number one enemy — who has spent most of the past two decades confined to her Yangon mansion.

But a senior government official on Saturday said there were no strings attached to Suu Kyi’s freedom. “She is completely free — there are no conditions at all,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Opposition leader Suu Kyi received a rapturous welcome from thousands of supporters on Saturday when she appeared outside her house after the end of her latest seven-year stretch of detention.
