Trial of Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi begins

BBC, 14 Jun 2021
The trial of ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has got under way, four months after a military coup removed the elected government from office.

She is charged with owning unlicensed walkie-talkies and violating Covid restrictions.

Later trials will focus on allegations of corruption and breaking the official secrets act.

Ms Suu Kyi, 75, has been held under house arrest since the 1 February coup in Myanmar (also called Burma), and little has been seen or heard of her apart from her brief court appearances.
