December 19, 2001— The Norwegian Postal Union will send 2,500 postcards to Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi bearing stamps with her image. "This is because we really want to see how serious the junta is about banning her stamps," said Joson Hosam, director of NPU. "We sent dozens of letters to our listeners in October. However, they are just receiving them now," explained a Democratic Voice of Burma Radio journalist. According to Oslo-based DVB, the Burmese military regime has already banned letters with stamps of the 1991-Nobel Peace Prizewinner. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian Postal Authority issued eight new stamps with pictures of Nobel Laureates, including Aung San Suu Kyi, in September.
