South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi sentenced to 4 years in prison” – below is their description.
Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who spent much of the 1990s and 2000s under house arrest, has been sentenced to four years in prison by a military-controlled court in Myanmar. She was found guilty of incitement against the military and breaching Covid-19 rules during elections last year. Deposed by the armed forces in a February 1 coup, it’s the first conviction in a series of trials the 76-year-old faces. After power was taken from her civilian-controlled government, she and colleagues from the National League for Democracy (NLD) party were indicted for charges including corruption and electoral fraud. Once seen as a torch-bearer for human rights, the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner’s reputation became tarnished in recent years over her response to the ongoing Rohingya refugee crisis.
