Myanmar junta sentences Aung San Suu Kyi to 5 years in prison for corruption | Axios

Must Read

According to Reuters, a Myanmar military court sentenced the country’s deposed leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to five years in jail in the first of 11 corruption allegations brought against her. It’s the latest in a series of charges initiated by Myanmar’s junta that may result in the 76-year-old former leader spending the rest of her life in jail. According to the Associated Press, the Nobel Laureate has previously been sentenced to six years in jail in other instances that have been condemned for being politically motivated. Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) won a huge victory in Myanmar’s 2020 elections, but in a coup last February, the military ousted the government and arrested her and other leaders. According to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners Burma, their incarceration sparked huge demonstrations, prompting the military junta to undertake a sweeping crackdown. However, the junta has continued to encounter resistance, and over 10,000 individuals are being kept in jail.
