Myanmar’s ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to another four years in jail on January 10, 2022. The 76-year-old was found guilty by a junta court of two charges related to illegally importing and owning walkie-talkies and one of breaking coronavirus rules. The sentence adds to a two-year jail term she received in December 2021, for incitement and breaching Covid-19 rules while campaigning. The Nobel laureate has been detained since February 1, 2021, when her government was forced out in a military coup. Many of her political allies have been arrested, with one chief minister sentenced to 75 years in jail, while others are in hiding.
