New Charges Filed Against Ousted Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, Lawyer Says

The state counsellor and her government were arrested by the Myanmar military a month ago, as the armed forces declared a year-long state of emergency in the country.

Aung San Suu Kyi, who has not been seen in public since last month when the military seized power in the country, appeared via video at her court hearing, a lawyer told Reuters.

According to lawyer Min Min Soe, the deposed state counsellor requested to see her legal team during the hearing via video link, as she had received an additional charge for publishing information that may “cause fear or alarm”.

Previously, local news portals reported that Aung San Suu Kyi was relocated from where she was being kept under house arrest to an unknown location.
