On 30th November, 2021 a Myanmar Junta Court postponed passing judgment in a case against Aung San Suu Kyi, who was ousted in February 2021, for incitement against Military in the country.
The Myanmar Junta Court was supposed to give the verdict for a jail term of 3 years in the incitement against the military case, on the former leader- Aung San Suu Kyi on 30th November, 2021 but adjourned the matter till 6th December, 2021.
The Aung San Suu Kyi Government was ousted on 1st February, 2021 by military officials of the country, this ended the small period of democracy in Myanmar. The 76-year-old Nobel Peace laureate-Suu Kyi is said to be jailed for 3 years if she is found to be guilty in the incitement case. Suu Kyi faces several other charges including violation of Covid-19 rules.
The trial and proceedings by the Junta Court are said to be in closed doors. Media is denied access to the proceedings of the case in the special court located in the capital city Naypyidaw and Aung San Suu Kyi’s lawyer is ordered to not speak to the media about anything related to the case.
This move of the Junta to postpone Aung San Suu Kyi’s verdict, is said to be made so that the military can ‘consolidate’ its power and grow stronger in front of the protesters, and so there is no kind of communication between the public and the ousted leader.
