Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi Makes First Court Appearance

ER Editor: We remind readers that Myanmar had an election back in November, which seems to have suffered from some of the same problems as the US one. As we wrote back on March 19, 2021,

According to independent news sources, Myanmar’s election on November 8, 2020 allegedly went the way of the recent US presidential one – falsified by vote-counting machines at minimum. Globalist ally Aung San Suu Kyi got re-elected, but was deposed in a military coup d’état on February 1, 2021. Soros is believed to be behind the public protests that have been taking place since February 1. Now the military is going after his funding sources and organization, as well as investigating Suu Kyi on corruption charges.

Soros has been behind Suu Kyi since the get-go. The Open Society Foundation staff were placed under investigation and its bank accounts seized following the February 1, 2021 coup. Suu Kyi was subsequently arrested; the military seized Myanmar central’s bank. Now Suu Kyi’s appearing in court for the first time.

Myanmar’s ousted leader Suu Kyi makes 1st in-person appearance in court since coup

Ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi appeared before court in person on Monday, for the first time since the February 1 coup that plunged the country into unrest, sparking protests which have been ongoing for nearly four months.

The deposed politician also had a face-to-face meeting with her legal team that lasted for about 30 minutes, Suu Kyi’s lawyer Thae Maung Maung told Reuters. The ousted leader “wished people good health,” sending an apparent message to her supporters and her National League for Democracy (NLD) party.

“She said the party was established for the people so the party will be there as long as the people are,” the lawyer said.

The NLD, which ruled the country before the February 1 coup, is now facing a forcible dissolution, as the military accused the party of rigging the elections back in November.

“What should we do with the NLD, which plotted against the law [to win the election]? The party must be abolished. And we must consider taking action against those who rigged the vote as traitors to the country,” the junta-appointed Union Election Commission (UEC) and a former major general in the Myanmar military, U Thein Soe, said on Friday as quoted by local media.

The allegation that Suu Kyi’s party won the last election fraudulently was one of the main pretexts for the military to seize power from the civilian government. Suu Kyi, along with other key politicians, has remained in the military’s custody since the coup. The ousted leader is facing various charges, ranging from smuggling electronic devices into the country to bribery.

The coup has plunged Myanmar into a prolonged period of civil unrest, with the protests against military rule having continued for nearly four months on an almost daily basis. The protests have been met with a heavy-handed police and military response, with more than 800 people killed during the crackdown, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners advocacy group. The official death toll is less than half that figure – according to the military, some 300 protesters and nearly 50 police have been killed in the post-coup violence.

The coup ended a short period of civilian rule in Myanmar, which had been controlled by the military governments for most of its modern history. The military ruled the country from the early 1960s until 2011.
