Preparations are under way for the expected release of Burma’s detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, officials said Wednesday, after the army’s proxies claimed a landslide election win.

Suu Kyi, who has spent most of the past two decades locked up, had her detention extended by 18 months in August last year over a bizarre incident in which an American man swam uninvited to her lakeside home where she is under house arrest.

“We haven’t got any instruction from superiors for her release yet. But we are preparing security plans for November 13,” a government official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
