Aung San Suu Kyi jailed for another seven years after Myanmar court finds her guilty on 5 counts of corruption | World News

The ousted leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, has been sentenced to a further seven years in prison for alleged corruption.

It is the latest in a string of cases brought against the 77-year-old since her elected government was toppled by the southeast Asian country’s army early last year.

She now faces a total of 33 years behind bars.

Her supporters and independent analysts say the charges against her are an attempt to legitimise the military’s seizure of power while eliminating her from politics before an election next year.
