Five additional charges of corruption leveled by military administration against Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi

 Five additional charges of corruption have been filed against Nobel Peace Prize laureate and ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi and ousted President Win Myint. If these leaders are found guilty under these charges, they can face a maximum jail term of 15 years. Recently, Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to four years in prison by a Myanmar military court. Aung San Suu Kyi was held responsible for inciting dissent against the military, possessing unlicensed walkie-talkies and violating coronavirus regulations.

According to the news agency Reuters, Aung San Suu Kyi is to serve six years in prison after the recently sentenced. Aung San Suu Kyi still has dozens of cases pending against her and if convicted, she would have to spend more than a hundred years in prison. Recently, 76-year-old Suu Kyi appeared calm during the sentencing in the courtroom in the capital of Myanmar. He had vehemently denied all the allegations leveled against him.

A statement issued by the military government said Suu Kyi was sentenced to two years in prison under section 505 (b) and two years under the Natural Disasters Act. The military says six illegal imported walkie-talkies were found during a search of his home on the day of the military coup. For this also he has been sentenced to two years imprisonment. These punishments will go together.

Former President Win Myint has also been jailed for four years on the same charges. However, from where he is now living, he will face other charges. Suu Kyi has been in custody since the military launched a coup in the country on February 1. After this a year of emergency was imposed and the elected government of the people was toppled. Democracy in the country came to an end with the military coup.

After taking Suu Kyi into custody, the army made all kinds of allegations against her. He was accused of committing the Official Secrets Act, corruption and electoral fraud. So far, journalists have been kept away from the proceedings of a special court set up by the army in the capital. Earlier, Suu Kyi's lawyers were banned from speaking to the media.
