YANGON, April 21, 2014 (BSS/AFP)- Win Tin, one of the founders of Myanmar's pro-democracy opposition and its longest- serving political prisoner, died Monday aged 84 after striving for decades to bring freedom to a nation under military dictatorship. The former journalist and veteran campaigner, whose almost two decades in jail failed to dull his commitment to the democratic cause, had suffered worsening ill health in recent weeks.
