According to a lawyer engaged in the case, an Australian aide to Myanmar’s deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi, appeared in a military court on Thursday to face immigration and official secrets charges (September 23). Following the February 1 coup that deposed Ms. Suu Kyi’s government and triggered massive protests, Macquarie University lecturer Sean Turnell was detained first foreign nationals.
Since his detention, Prof Turnell has been imprisoned at Yangon’s Insein Prison, and in court in Naypyidaw, he seemed “frail and weary,” according to lawyer Khin Maung Zaw, who is working on the case. According to the lawyer, Prof Turnell was dressed in a “complete Covid-19 protective suit,” who did not provide any specifics. His wife petitioned for his release in July, citing health concerns after a spike of Covid-19 cases across the country.
State-run media then published photos of the professor supposedly receiving a vaccination in Insein Prison.
