Aung San Suu Kyi: Myanmar’s Ousted Leader Sentenced To 4 Years In Jail


Ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four years in prison, on charges of inciting dissent and breaking Covid rules under a natural disasters law. Rights group Amnesty called the charges “bogus”, saying it was the “latest example of the military’s determination to eliminate all opposition and suffocate freedoms in Myanmar.”

According to the reports, Suu Kyi, who is currently under house arrest since a military coup in February which toppled her elected civilian government in Myanmar, faces 11 charges in total. She has denied all charges.

Co-defendant Win Myint, the former president and Ms Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) party ally, was also jailed on Monday for four years under the same charges.
