The Producers of ‘The Lady’ might want to send Burma’s leaders
Michelle Yeoh, a former Bond girl, tried to enter the country on 22 June but was deported on the same day.
An official told reporters that Michelle Yeoh was now blacklisted and would not be able to enter Burma.
She has visited Burma before – in December, she met the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi.
“She did not have the chance to enter Myanmar (Burma) again. She was deported straight away on the first flight after arriving at Yangon (Rangoon) International Airport,” a Burmese official said.
Ms Yeoh has previously travelled to Burma with Aung San Suu Kyi’s son, Kim Aris, who was allowed into the country earlier this month to mark his mother’s 66th birthday.
Ms Yeoh portrays Aung San Suu Kyi’s life in a forthcoming film, The Lady.
A new constitution apparently hasn’t changed Burma much.
