Aung, Bohmu

   (1910-2004)
   Nom de guerre of one of the Thirty Comrades, originally known as Thakin Saw Hlaing. He served in the Burma Independence Army during World War II and held prominent positions in the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League and the governments of Prime Minister U Nu after independence. Jailed by Ne Win following the March 1962 coup d'état, he later went into exile and became head of the northwestern command of the Parliamentary Democracy Party, U Nu's Thailand-based insurgency, returning to Burma in 1980 after Ne Win declared an amnesty. During 1988's Democracy Summer, he was a member of U Nu's "parallel government" and later became the leader of a group of "veteran politicians" who advocated dialogue between the State Law and Order Restoration Council/State Peace and Development Council and the National League for Democracy. His death in November 2004 left only two surviving members of the Thirty Comrades.
