A Myanmar Court on Tuesday resumed hearings in the cases against detained leader of the National League for Democracy (NLD) and renowned prisoner Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, after her first hearing in two months was postponed on Monday owing to illness.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint and Dr. Myo Aung were all present during the Trial.

The Counsel said, “In the Sedition proceedings against all three, the arguments have been heard under Section 505 (b) of the Myanmar Penal Code, and the Court will deliver its decision at the next hearing.”

On February 1, all three were detained, when the military staged a revolution to overthrow the Country’s democratically elected NLD Government.

Suu Kyi is charged with multiple charges of violating COVID restrictions, possessing walkie-talkies, sedition, and violating the Official Secret Act.

The Military has also charged her with multiple charges of corruption. She would probably face a 75-year jail sentence.
