The magazine Weekly Eleven reports in its latest issue that the Press Scrutiny board did not say how the privately owned local magazines violated regulations.

However, all nine printed photos of recently released pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi in inserts that were used as wraparound covers when the magazines were on sale.

Suu Kyi was released from house arrest Nov 13 after 7 1/2 years of continuous detention. Her political movement won elections in 1990, but the military did not allow it to take power
