Aung San Suu Kyi jailed for four more years on walkie-talkie and Covid charges
The Independent says Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi was convicted of three criminal charges and sentenced to four more years in prison on Monday for illegally importing and possessing walkie-talkies and violating coronavirus restrictions, an official said.
Ms Suu Kyi was handed down a two-year sentence for breaching the export-import law and one year for having a set of signal jammers. The two sentences will run concurrently, sources familiar with the proceedings told Reuters.
She was also sentenced to two years on another charge of breaching the natural disaster management law for violating coronavirus restrictions.
