Six Years in Prison for Ousted Myanmar Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi

Deposed Myanmar Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to six years in prison for corruption in four cases.

 

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is said to have funneled money from her own charitable organization, a court in the military dictatorship ruled.

She was previously sentenced to 11 years for other offenses, such as sedition and violating corona measures. She was placed under house arrest but later sent to a special prison with solitary confinement.

Cases are also pending for, among other things, electoral fraud. Human rights organizations speak of mock trials to eliminate her politics.

Suu Kyi, 77, was ousted early last year by the military, which refused to accept her major election victory at the end of 2020.
