Police file new charges against San Suu Kyi, after extending her detention until Wednesday

The Burmese leader has already been charged with a crime of illegal importation and would now face a charge related to the law of natural disasters.

The Burmese police presented new charges on Tuesday against the elected Burmese leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, deposed by the army in a coup on February 1.
The Nobel Peace Prize and State Councilor, who has been under house arrest since the military uprising, was charged on February 3 for illegally importing a telephone device and was expected to appear before the judge tomorrow.

As the lawyer Khin Maung Zaw confirmed to EFE, the Nobel Peace Prize winner has also been accused of a crime related to the Law of Natural Disasters.
It is the same charge brought against the president, Win Myint, also under arrest and accused of breaking the social distancing measures imposed by the pandemic by organizing an electoral event attended by more than 30 people.

Suu Kyi, 75, who already spent 15 years under house arrest during the previous military junta, faces a sentence of up to three years in prison for the crime of illegal importation.

The military junta carried out an internet blackout during this morning for the second consecutive night, while the presence of tanks and armed troops since last Sunday has increased the tension amid massive protests against the coup.

The security forces have used water cannons and fired rubber and live ammunition at the protesters, which has been criticized by the United States, the European Union and other countries that have called for the return of democracy to the country and the liberation of The detainees.

The military junta, led by the head of the Armed Forces, Min Aung Hlaing, justified the seizure of power by alleged electoral fraud in the elections last November in which the National League for Democracy, the party led by Suu Kyi, it swept, as it did in 2015.

A total of 426 people have been arrested since the military uprising, of which 391 are still detained, according to the latest data collected on Monday by the Association for the Assistance of Political Prisoners (AAPP).
