Myanmar’s ousted Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four more years in prison

A source informs AFP that she has been found guilty on two charges in the case where she is accused of illegal import and possession of walkie-talkies and on one point in the case where she is accused of violating the corona rules.

In December, 76-year-old Suu Kyi was sentenced to prison for sedition and violation of coronary restrictions. The sentence was actually four years ‘imprisonment, but it was commuted to two years’ house arrest.

There have been widespread protests and clashes in Myanmar since the military junta seized power and detained Suu Kyi on February 1 this year. The military junta has since ruled with an iron fist and suppressed peaceful protesters and other resistance.

More than 1,300 people have been killed and more than 11,000 arrested since then, according to local activists.
