There are two new charges against Myanmar’s ousted President Win Mint. His lawyer, Khin Mong Joe, briefed him on Wednesday. This includes allegations of violating the constitution. He could face up to three years in prison. On February 1, Myanmar’s military overthrew the country’s elected government last week. The army, meanwhile, won the mint by arresting other leaders, including Aung San Suu Kyi. Win Mint is also facing charges of violating the Corona virus protocol.
Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi was arraigned in court on Monday via video conferencing. Two more charges have been filed against him, but supporters say they have been completely fabricated. The former supreme leader of the country looked perfectly healthy during the announcement. Suu Kyi has expressed a desire to meet with her lawyers. The next hearing will be held on March 18. This was the first time the dry has been seen in public since the coup in February.
Tell us that the Foreign Ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) held a video conference on Tuesday on the ongoing political upheaval in Myanmar. Myanmar is also a member. ASEAN foreign ministers have called for the release of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi and for a peaceful solution to the dispute.
Re-firing on protesters
Pro-democracy supporters took to the streets on Tuesday to protest the coup. Police in Yangon used stone grenades to disperse the crowd. Protesters were firing on the Black City from the west. Demonstrations are beginning across the country against the military coup. So far 21 people have died. The army is justifying the coup, saying the November election was rigged. Aung San Suu Kyi’s party won a landslide victory in the by-elections.
