Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi hit with a new criminal charge

Published Date:

Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi has been hit with more criminal charges Monday. This comes amid the ongoing protests against the military coup in Myanmar.

Suu Kyi has not been seen in public since her detention. The military junta had deposed her government and seized power following a coup.

There are in total six cases going on against Suu Kyi. The generals are deploying brutal methods to stifle dissent. The most serious of all charges against her falls under Myanmar’s official secrets laws.

More than 700 civilians have been killed in the deadly crackdown. This brutality from Tatmadaw against the civilians has brought widespread international condemnation.

Last week, Myanmar’s own ambassador to the United Nations called for a no-fly zone and sanctions.

The international community continues to put more pressure on Myanmar’s military junta to end this violence.

The military seized power on February 1, 2021. It ousted an elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar.

There has been violence, bloodshed all over in the country. Moreover, the clampdown on peaceful protesters and the subsequent killing of over 700 people is what worries the world countries.

Meanwhile, the major world powers now aim to destroy the military junta’s business interests- ruby and jade trade. There is also total suppression of communication in Myanmar.

Burma is a country with a record of infighting between the military junta and rebel ethnic armies.

There exist several armed ethnic groups in Myanmar. They control territories. Their stronghold is mostly in border regions. They too are voicing their opposition against the coup.

Furthermore, there exist a state of emergency in the country. This makes harder for world powers and organisations to take stock of situation and the people.
