The United States has criticized Burma’s Supreme Court for not releasing Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

The court rejected her appeal asking to be freed from house arrest.

A State Department official says Washington condemns the Supreme Court’s decision.

He says Aung San Suu Kyi is being held under house arrest for purely political reasons.

Suu Kyi’s lawyer Nyan Win, who was barred from the courtroom, says he plans to lodge an appeal against the decision.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon expressed disappointment over the court’s decision.
