Deposed Myanmmar Leader Jailed For Inciting Dissent

Ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four years in prison, in the first in a series of verdicts that could jail her for life.

She was found guilty on charges of inciting dissent and breaking Covid rules under a natural disasters law.

Suu Kyi has been under house arrest since February when the military launched a coup, toppling her elected civilian government and detaining leaders.

It is not clear when or if Ms Suu Kyi will be placed in prison.

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.

Suu Kyi’s lawyers, who had been the sole source of information on the legal proceedings, have also been served with gag orders forbidding them from releasing information.

.

Ms Suu Kyi is one of more than 10,600 people to have been arrested by the Junta since February, and at least 1,303 others killed in the demonstrations, according to the monitoring group assistance association for political prisoners.
