YANGON, Myanmar – The daughter of an assassinated Myanmar legal adviser says his family worried about his activities and warned him to be careful, but he pursued his work for the sake of Myanmar's people, regardless of who they were or what religion they believed.
Ko Ni, a prominent adviser to the country's leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the ruling party, was shot to death at the Yangon airport Sunday.
Dr. Yin Nwe Khine told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview Tuesday that the family feels no regret for Ko Ni's prominent work despite their warnings, and considers him a fallen hero.
Ko Ni was Muslim and specialized in constitutional law, criticizing army interference in politics. The police arrested a suspect in the killing but the motive is not known.
