Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi sentenced to four years in jail Updated: 2021-12-06 17:03:45 KST


Myanmar's ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four years in prison.
Citing the junta's spokesman on Monday, AFP reports that Suu Kyi was given two years for inciting unrest against the military, and another two for violating COVID-19 regulations.
Details of the proceedings are unknown as of yet, as there were no observers, and her lawyers were barred from speaking to the media.
Monday's ruling is the first of a series of cases, following the military's coup on February first.

Suu Kyi is currently facing more than ten charges, which include accusations of being involved in corruption and electoral fraud.
If convicted in all, Suu Kyi could end up facing a jail sentence of more than 100 years.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner was detained after the junta seized power in February as the military refused to accept the results of a general election,.. which Suu Kyi's democratic party won by a majority.
People across the country took to the streets, demanding the release of the civilian leader.
According to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, more than 10-thousand 6-hundred people have been arrested since the February coup.
1-thousand 3-hundred have died.
