BANGKOK – Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi was transferred from a secret detention center to a prison in the country’s capital on Wednesday, legal authorities familiar with her case said. His ongoing legal disputes will be tried in another office developed in the prison compound, they said.
Suu Kyi was captured on February 1, 2021, when the military was in power from her elected government. He was initially held captive at his home in the capital, but was later transferred to another area without a doubt, and for about a year he was held in an undisclosed location in the capital, Napaitao, which was supposed to be an army base.
He was stabbed to death on various charges, including contempt, and the trial began on May 24, 2021, in an exceptional court in Napitao. Each of the 11 defilements he faced was punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
He has so far been sentenced to 11 years in prison after being charged with unlawful possession of a walkie-talkie and abuse of coveted restrictions. Despite ongoing defamation cases, he has similarly been accused of political racism and disregarding the Official Secrets Act.
Suu Kyi’s allies and the Privilege Group say the allegations against her are politically motivated and an attempt to strategically legitimize the seizure of power by disrespecting her and preventing her from returning to the legislative issue.
Many senior figures in his administration and party were similarly captured and tried, and a few co-reporters in part of his case. According to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, a secret agency that tracks government killings and detainees, there are currently 11,174 detainees in the Military Chamber to protest against the decision.
Suu Kyi, who turned 77 on Sunday, has been held captive for nearly 15 years under the previous military government, yet basically every last part of it was detained at her family home in the country’s largest city, Yangon.
Three legitimate authorities said Suu Kyi’s legal advisers had been trained on Tuesday that another prison structure had been completed and that all remaining trials of Suu Kyi, starting Thursday, would be held there. Authorities have spoken out against the anonymity because they are not authorized to provide any information about his case.
Authorities say public authorities expected him to be released after his most memorable conviction last year, but will have to hold on until the new office at the primary prison in Naipaitao is finished.
No administrative representative was available to confirm Suu Kyi’s turn.
The mysterious place where he was kept for the previous year was a house where he had nine people to help him plan his stay, along with a dog which was a gift organized by one of his children.
Australian financial expert Shawn Turnell, who was Suu Kyi’s adviser, is being held in the same jail where Suu Kyi was sent.
Turnell and Suu Kyi are being sentenced in a similar case under the Official Secrets Act, which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison, so both will have to appear in court inside the jail on Thursday.
Despite 11 counts of impurity, Suu Kyi and several of her partners have been charged with political extortion, which carries the maximum penalty of three years.
