Myanmar Military Coup: After the military coup in Myanmar, the army made many big allegations against Aung San Suu Kyi. Now the trial has started against him.
Trial begins against Aung San Suu Kyi
Aung San Suu Kyi Trial Begins: Nearly four months after a military coup in Myanmar, the trial against ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has begun. The army took power from Aung San’s government. Also the leaders of the party were taken into custody (Aung San Suu Kyi Trials). Aung San was previously accused of having an unlicensed walkie-talkie and violating COVID rules. After this, he was also accused of corruption and violating the Official Secret Act.
The hearing has been condemned by human rights groups and has called it an attempt to prevent future elections. Aung San, 75, has been placed under house arrest since February 1. This is the same day when there was a coup in the country (Aung San Suu Kyi Current News). But no information has come to the fore about what Aung San has to say on all this. Nor is it known what he has said in the court hearing. She has met her lawyers only twice since her detention.
Hearing in the second case on June 15
Another hearing on sedition charges will be held on June 15. If she is found guilty in this case only, she will have to spend at least 14 years in jail. Earlier, he was also accused of corruption. He is said to have illegally accepted $600,000 in cash and 11 kg of gold (Aung San Suu Kyi House Arrest). His lawyer, Qin Mong Jae, says that all this is being done to tarnish his image. So that he cannot remain in power in the country. This is the reason why such allegations are being leveled against him.
How many years in jail can that be?
If convicted of corruption, he could face 15 years in prison. Violation of the Secret Act is punishable with imprisonment of at least 14 years (Aung San Suu Kyi in Hindi). Violation of import-export laws by illegally importing walkie-talkies can lead to a jail term of three years. Violating the Telecommunications Act by importing a walkie-talkie can result in a maximum jail term of 1 year if proven guilty. Violation of the Natural Calamity Act can be punished with a maximum jail term of three years.
