Frustration in Myanmar over decision to imprison Aung San Suu Kyi

(LANKAPUVATH | MYANMAR) – Citizens in Yangon, Myanmar, have expressed their frustration with the two-year imprisonment sentence against the leader Aung San Suu Kyi, under the judgment released by the military junta controlled court.

The judgment comes after the government gave a partial amnesty to lower the number of years in prison for the removed leader, from four to two years, on accusations of incitement and breaching the restrictions of covid.

It is the first verdict against San Suu Kyi since her ouster in February, as she encountered around twelve charges, including breaking the Official Secrets Act with a total penalty of more than 100 years.

The citizen Tin, (fake name), said that the list of charges against San Suu Kyi is illegitimate and urged people to come out and protest to overthrow the military council and refuse to recognize it.”
