Myanmar’s military junta chief said that Aung San Suu Kyi is in good health. And she will appear in court during the general’s first television interview since the coup.

Min Aung Hlaing is the military general who overthre Suu Kyi in a coup. Suu Kyi has been under house arrest since the coup began.

There have been a string of criminal charges against her. One of the most serious charges against Suu Kyi alleges that she violated the Myanmar’s colonial-era Official Secrets Act.

There have been allegations against the NLD of election fraud in 2020. Over these same allegations, the junta threatened to dissolve Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) party.

The junta has announced a one-year state of emergency in Myanmar following the coup. The country has been in chaos since the coup. Its economy has almost paralysed.

In April the military junta had met with ASEAN leaders to discuss the situation in Myanmar.

ASEAN had even issued a ‘five-point consensus’ statement caling for ‘immediate cessation of violence’ and a visit to Myanmar by a regional special envoy.
