Myanmar junta hits Suu Kyi with more corruption charges

Myanmar’s Suu Kyi appears in court in person for first time since coup


Her lawyer told Reuters that Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of Myanmar’s deposed leader, attended the court hearing in person on Monday, the first time since the military government overthrew the Myanmar government on February 1st.

Suu Kyi looked in good health and held a face-to-face meeting with her legal team for about 30 minutes before the hearing, lawyer Thae Maung Maung said.

Suu Kyi, 75, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate for her long struggle to build democracy in the country, is among more than 4,000 people detained since the coup. She faces charges that range from illegally possessing walkie-talkie radios to violating a state secrets law.
