A court in Myanmar sentenced the country’s ousted leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to four years in prison.
Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four years in prison, the first in a series of verdicts that could mean she spends the rest of her life in jail.
The former Myanmar leader has been under house arrest since a military coup in February ended her elected government.
She was found guilty on charges of inciting dissent and breaking Covid rules under a natural disasters law.
Rights group Amnesty called the charges “bogus” and said it was the “latest example of the military’s determination to eliminate all opposition and suffocate freedoms in Myanmar”. (BBC News)
