Myanmar fights Aung San Suu Kyi with new charges | The story of Aung San Suu Kyi
The most elected leader has been imprisoned at home since the military seized power and is already facing a number of charges.
Aung San Suu Kyi, who led Myanmar until the military ousted the government in February, is expected to face a number of fraud cases just days before his trial.
The state-run Global New Light Of Myanmar has stated this, which comes on top of a a string of other cases, followed an investigation by the Anti-Corruption Commission at the Daw Khin Kyi Foundation.
“She was found guilty of corruption in the exercise of her powers,” the paper said. “As a result, he was charged under section 55 of the Anti-Corruption Law.”
The commission has accused 75-year-old Aung San Suu Kyi of receiving $ 600,000 in gold from a former prime minister of Yangon province, and of violating a number of land and property rights.
Several other officials have also been found guilty of fraudulently obtaining land use permits, the paper said.
“The files were opened to them at the town police station yesterday (Wednesday),” the paper said.
Aung San Suu Kyi and his government officials were arrested by the military on February 1 as military leader Min Aung Hlaing seized power and ushered a slow-moving country into democracy as a long-term problem.
The seizure of power by the spies has fueled months of protests and the insurgency, which has been plagued by violence. More than 850 people have been killed in the operation, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, which has been monitoring the situation.
Aung San Suu Kyi has been charged with a number of offenses including illegal walkie-talkies, violation of coronavirus laws, and violation of state secrecy law during colonial times.
