Yangon, June 23:
Myanmar's ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been moved to prison and being kept in solitary confinement. "By the law, it's confirmed that (Suu Kyi) has been moved to the prison. And she's been kept at separate confinement well," said Major General Zaw Min Tun.
On February 1, 2021, Myanmar's military overthrew the government and declared a year-long state of emergency hours before the newly-elected Parliament was due to convene. Since the military seized power in a coup in 2021, she has been kept under house arrest at an undisclosed location in the capital Naypyidaw.
Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate has been charged with at least 20 criminal offences that carry potential combined maximum jail terms of more than 100 years. Myanmar later extended the state of emergency in the country for 6 more months.
Citing National Defense and Security Council, reports said that Myanmar's junta formally extended the state of emergency until July 31. Myanmar's military leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing is the one who led a coup against an elected civilian government in 2021 & detained Aung San Suu Kyi over alleged election irregularities.
