YANGON (AFP) - A US man told the trial of Aung San Suu Kyi Wednesday that he swam to the Myanmar democracy icons home to warn her of a divine vision about a terrorist plot to assassinate her, her party said. John Yettaw took the stand for the first time in the case against the Nobel Laureate, who faces up to five years in jail on charges of breaching her house arrest, stemming from the Americans bizarre visit this month. The 53-year-old said he came to Myanmar from his home in Missouri because he had a dream that terrorists would try to pin the blame for killing her on the military regime, Aung San Suu Kyis party spokesman Nyan Win told reporters. He said the reason he came was in his vision he saw that Aung San Suu Kyi was assassinated by terrorists. Because of his vision, he came here to warn Aung San Suu Kyi and also the government, Nyan Win said. In his vision, the terrorists assassinated Aung San Suu Kyi and then they put the blame for the assassination on the government, so thats why he came here to warn both of them, he said. Nyan Win said judges questioned Yettaw for three hours, during which the devout Mormon and former US army veteran repeatedly said he had divine inspiration for his night-time swim on May 4. Yettaw is charged with breaching security laws, illegal swimming and immigration offences. The court had also rejected three of the four witnesses requested by the defence, including the detained deputy leader of her party, Nyan Win said, adding: This Friday they could reach the verdict. Critics accuse Myanmars military regime of trumping up the charges to keep her locked up during elections due in 2010. Aung San Suu Kyi has been in detention for 13 of the last 19 years. Facing international outrage over the trial, Myanmars junta has previously blamed anti-government elements for Yettaws visit and alleged he was a secret agent or her boyfriend. But 63-year-old opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in a statement filed in the court Tuesday, blamed security failures by the junta for the incident. The basic reason for this case is a security failure or security breakdown. No action was taken regarding security but it was me who was charged, said the statement. She said that the authorities took no action when she reported a prior, uninvited visit by Yettaw to her house in November 2008. Around 300 members of Aung San Suu Kyis National League for Democracy (NLD) party freed doves and prayed at their headquarters Wednesday on the 19th anniversary of an election win annulled by the junta. Dozens of plainclothes security officials videotaped and photographed people at the event. The NLD scored a landslide victory in Myanmars last democratic elections, on May 27, 1990, but the military regime never allowed Aung San Suu Kyi to form a government. Myanmar unexpectedly informed Aung San Suu Kyi on Tuesday morning that her latest six-year period of house arrest was officially over although she remains in detention at the prison. The term was due to expire on May 27. In Washington, US President Barack Obama late Tuesday urged the junta to immediately and unconditionally release the campaigner, adding that the proceedings against her were a show trial. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and celebrities including actor George Clooney added their voices to an online petition to call for her release. In Cambodia, ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations confronted member country Myanmar Wednesday over the issue, a week after issuing a statement condemning the juntas treatment of her.
