A court in military-ruled Myanmar has convicted ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi on four corruption charges and sentenced her to six years in prison. A source in the junta administration said she was found guilty of misappropriating funds from the Daw Khin Kee Foundation, building a house, and leasing government-owned land at discounted rates. The article is about Suu Kyi Imprisoned For Six Years Over Corruption.
The military government has charged Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, 77, with at least 18 crimes ranging from corruption to election violations. Ms. Suu Kyi could face a maximum sentence of nearly 190 years in prison if convicted of these charges. However, Suu Kyi has called the allegations baseless and has denied all allegations against her.
Suu Kyi, who is being held in a solitary prison in the capital Nay Pyi Taw, has already been sentenced to 11 years in prison in other cases. Myanmar’s politics have been in turmoil since the army overthrew the elected government led by Suu Kyi after she won last year’s general election.
