Former Myanmar Leader Aung San Suu Kyi Moved to Solitary Confinement

Former Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been moved to solitary confinement in Naypyidaw following her recent court trials.

The Myanmar Police Force’s Special Branch reportedly informed Suu Kyi and her lawyers of the transfer after her many hearings last Tuesday but did not explain why.

“In accordance with criminal laws… (Aung San Suu Kyi) has been kept in solitary confinement in prison” confirmed Junta spokesperson Zaw Min Tun.

Since her house arrest last year, Suu Kyi has been detained at an undisclosed location with seven other aides and even her dog.

Suu Kyi’s recent detainment is the second time she would be going to prison while the duration of her present incarceration carries a combined sentence of more than 100 years due to numerous charges brought upon her by the junta.

Aside from Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint was also moved to prison but the junta has not confirmed yet.
