Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi, deposed in a military coup, has asked to speak to her lawyers in person in a short court hearing.


She has been imprisoned, and the new rulers have made a series of charges against her. On Monday, another one was added that, like previous accusations, has to do with the corona measures. The next session is on April 26.

The military, who has ruled the country for about 50 years since 1962 and loosened the reins a decade ago, seized power from Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi on February 1.

In 2015, he won the free elections with an overwhelming majority. She won an even more significant poll victory in November, much to the annoyance of the military.

They say fraud has been committed, and new elections should be held within two years. They bloody down the massive and sustained protests against the coup. At least 700 people have already died.
