MYANMAR – On Monday (August 15), Junta’s kangaroo Nay Pyi Taw Prison Court convicted Detained Leader on more corruption charges, La Yaung Taw project case adding six years to her earlier 11-years imprisonment, said people close to the court.
The Ousted Leader was sentenced to six years for four cases in today’s trial; three years imprisonment per cases number 2, 3, and 5, but those three cases will be served concurrently, another three years for case number 25, alleged by the corrupt junta that she abused her position to rent public land at below market price built a residence with donations meant for charitable purposes.
As of June 2022, there were at least 20 cases filed by the military council against State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, and six of them were initially sentenced to 11 years in prison by the kangaroo court. The Country Leader has been sentenced to a total of 17 years in prison including today’s six years imprisonment.
Former Mayor of Nay Pyi Taw, Dr. Myo Aung, who was jointly prosecuted in the cases filed by the Nay Pyi Taw Court for granting a permit to rent land, was also sentenced to 6 years in prison for 2 cases, but he only served 3 years for the 2 cases combined.
The junta’s court also sentenced former Government Office Minister Min Thu to 2-years in prison and former Yangon Region Planning and Finance Minister Ye Min Oo to 3-years in prison, who were co-defendants.
The unscrupulous junta charged and convicted Principled Activist Aung San Suu Kyi for applying and acquiring more than 100 acres of land for the La Yaung Taw Agricultural and Vocational School run by Daw Khin Kyi Foundation.
Corruption cases carry a maximum prison sentence of up to 15 years for each case, but the junta’s court allowed the cases to be combined and reduced the prison terms.
