Myanmar Court Sentences Aung San Suu Kyi To Four Years In Prison

Must read

Banished Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been found guilty of inciting dissent and breaking Covid rules, in the first of a series of verdicts that could see her jailed for life.
Suu Kyi was handed the four year sentence by a court but junta chief Min Aung Hlaing later reduced it to two years.
Suu Kyi faces 11 charges in total but she denies them all.
Co-defendant Win Myint, the former president and Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party ally, was also jailed for four years under the same charges.
It is not clear when or if Suu Kyi will be placed in prison. She is being held at an undisclosed location.
Meanwhile, UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, has called on Myanmar to release all political prisoners and allow a return to democracy.
