: Burmese minister backs away from suu kyi release
D.H. Sathyaeng, executive director of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), said his country would give a deadline of June 12 to seek an explanation from Beijing about the fate of those on its soil held in detention.
He cited an order issued last month by the National People's Congress (NPC) executive branch that the government "condemn<s>" the release of four prisoners for lack of political will or capacity to represent their people on mainland China and would not let any individual be subjected to such treatment, as outlined in China's judicial code.
NPC's executive branch spokesman, Chia Hong, told state-run media Friday that the five men have been detained at the border with Myanmar, but it was unclear what their status would be until Thursday's judicial order.
A total of 13 men have been arrested so far on a list issued by the state-run People's Daily on December 11, including three from the ethnic minority Rohingya community in Bangladesh. Myanmar has charged the men with inciting violence during a violent march that was part of a massive demonstration in response to the arrest of nine Myanmar Buddhist monks last month.
China's State Council spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Thursday that those people with mental or physical health disabilities who include those "who have lost their ability to give informed opinions or who have been treated severely or criminally in detention" cannot be held.
The Chinese government does not recognize the legal rights of people with mental or physical disabilities, so it has the authority to detain them "under certain circumstances, but for other reasons and within the law," she said.
An official at the Supreme People's Court in Beijing, where many of China's people's courts and criminal cases are handled, said Friday that the authorities were monitoring the status of the detained detainees and would determine if they were entitled to legal representation. "We're not in a position to give details right now," the official said, citing an individual's rights to counsel and freedom of expression. "As a matter of policy, we don't disclose the exact reasons in the judicial order."

M.D. Lee, a research fellow at the East Asia Foundation who works on human rights issues in Myanmar, called the NHRC's order about the case "very strange" considering that it only stated that those detained should be represented by an attorney, not that they should be allowed legal representation.
She said it is likely that the NHRC's order "is a PR stunt intended to further the Chinese government's efforts to intimidate the elected government of the ruling National League for Democracy
Recovering sally fitzgibbons into us open last eight days. (1/26)
(0/6): Tried to build my own version of ppls tbh, this build doesn't work on ppls but does work on many other ppls that will install the mod (0.3.12.1045.zip). It is now fully compatible with my other mod. It does seem to cause issues with my other mod, the only difference is that I replaced the one called wafflemaker with my own version, this mod is not that much more complex so maybe it is worth considering. (0/26)
(1/7): The mod now only adds 3 more Skellige tiles to the campaign world as opposed to 12 from the original patch. This is due to the fact that i removed all my old tiles, i will probably do this in the future and add them back in. (0/26)
(0/12): It seems like the campaign map was edited a bit, so this mod's campaign is no longer available. Also now that I've taken the liberty of reworking the entire campaign map I will re-upload my original campaign map to save some time, but if I don't re-upload it again then this mod will stop working.

(0/18): A few of the Skellige tiles in my original map were changed because i have a problem with the original game (0/16)
(1/15): New Skellige tiles added as part of the mod, this one I modified a bit but the mod still does not work properly. I will try again in the future when i have time. (0/18)
(1/13): Added two new Skellige tiles in my original map. As the original map was edited before i removed the tile names the tiles are now named correctly (0/17)
(1/15): My original Skellige tiles are now on the mod again as it isn't possible to delete them. (0/16)
(0/15): Added some more Skellige tiles to the mod so that it should hopefully be slightly less buggy (0/22)
(0/15): Added a new Skellige tile to the main tile pack, it should be a little easier to use and should be less likely to break in future versions. (0/14)
(0/15): Added a few more Skellige tiles in to my original ma
