Aung San Suu Kyi: Myanmar court sentences ousted leader to four years jail

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.

Ms Suu Kyi faces 11 charges in total, all of which she has denied, Aung San Suu Kyi sentenced to 4 years with more to come.

She 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 Aung Suu Kyi will be placed in prison. But people around the world are waking up to this news and celebrating. She has had this coming, being stripped of her honourary titles and distanced by those who once celebrated her as a liberator.

The persecution of the Rohingya in Myanmar under her rule has been nothing less than brutal and savage. It was reported by Yvonne Ridley, whilst visiting and reporting for the Rohingya that she was responsible for genocide and a team of lawyers at that time started legal proceedings for war crimes against her.

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 ‘to die in prison’

The 76-year-old has been slapped with an array of charges, including multiple counts of corruption and violating the official secrets act.

Little has been seen or heard of her apart from her brief court appearances.

“She is not OK… military generals are preparing for 104 years of sentences for her in prison. They want her to die in prison,” Dr Sasa said. a spokesperson for the newly formed government.

The military had seized power alleging voter fraud in general elections held last year in which the NLD won by a landslide.
