Aung San Suu Kyi trial to begin next week


Aung San Suu Kyi’s lawyer announced that her trial would begin next week; Aung San Suu faces various charges, ranging from having unlicensed walkie-talkies to breaking coronavirus-related restrictions.
Because of these charges and Myanmar going under martial law, there has been uproar in Myanmar. The country has been facing daily protests and civil disobedience on a day-to-day basis.
Along with other accusations, the junta has charged her with the allegation of violating the colonial-era official secrets act of the country. As per her lawyer, the trial will commence on 14th June and will end by 26th June.
Since her house arrest, her lawyers have only been allowed to meet her twice. Suu Kyi had stayed under house arrest for 15 years before she was released in 2010; she rose to power with the help of elections that took place five years after 2010.
When Aung San Suu Kyi won the elections again this year, min Aung Hlaing, the junta leader, started an uproar saying the there has been an electoral fraud, and she won in a landslide. Previously also, they have threatened to dissolve the NLD and will hold fresh elections within two years.
The ongoing clash between the Myanmar military and the citizens of Myanmar is one of the most brutal and hardened battles in southeast Asia.
