Khun Saing, former political prisoner from Burma

Khun Saing, a former medical student was jailed on three seperate occasions for his political activities spending more than 13 years in prison. He eventually fled Burma after his release in 2004 and met and married his wife Aye Aye Moe (also a former political prisoner) whilst living in Umpiem Mai refugee camp on the Thai-Burma border. Whilst Khun Saing has been resettled to the UK, his wife and young child remain in the camp, unrecognised as refugees and unable to be resettled with him. Now living in the UK, Khun Saing continues his lifelong fight to bring democracy to his country and now his own personal fight to get his family to join him.
