New Charges against Aung San Suu Kyi

Yangon, 17/2: In a major development, Myanmar’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi was filed with a second charge by Myanmar’s authority.

She faces a charge of violating a section of Myanmar’s Natural Disaster Law, Khin Maung Zaw told local media.

The charge may allow her to be detained indefinitely without a trial, due to changes to the country’s Penal Code that the junta implemented last week.

Suu Kyi was taken into custody on February 1 when Myanmar’s military staged a coup against her civilian government.
