Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi was imprisoned for four years: junta spokesman

Yangon: A ruling party spokesman told AFP on Monday that a Myanmar court instigated an objection to the military and imprisoned exiled civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi for four years for violating Covid’s rules.

Suu Kyi was “sentenced to two years’imprisonment under Article 505 (b) and two years’ imprisonment under the Natural Disaster Act,” said military junta spokesman Zaw Min Tun.

Former President Win Myint was also imprisoned for four years on the same charges, adding that they were not yet in jail.

In the capital Naypyidaw, “they will be charged with other charges from where they are currently staying,” he added.

76-year-old Suu Kyi has been detained since the general expelled her government early on February 1, ending a short democratic interlude in Myanmar.

Since then, the junta has added many other indictments, including violations of the Official Secrets Act, corruption, and fraudulent elections. Nobel laureates face decades of imprisonment if convicted in all respects.

Journalists have been banned from proceedings in a special court in the capital built by the military, and Suu Kyi’s lawyer has recently been banned from talking to the media.

Since the coup, more than 1,300 people have been killed and more than 10,000 have been arrested in crackdowns on complaints, according to local surveillance groups.
