FOREIGN AFFAIRS—BURMA—DAW AUNG SAN SUU KYI

Senator Ludlam, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 510—That the Senate—

 (a) notes that:

  (i) Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to a further 18 months of house arrest in Burma on 11 August 2009,

  (ii) this sentence will prevent her from participating in the proposed 2010 elections, and

  (iii) the constitution establishing election procedures is fundamentally flawed and fails to achieve basic democratic standards; and


 (b) calls on the Australian Government to investigate all possible options for progressing a United Nations Commission of Inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma.

Question put and passed.
