Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been charged by the military government of election fraud and lawless actions.
She was among 16 people to be charged yesterday, including Myanmar’s ousted president and the capital city’s mayor.
Ms Suu Kyi, 76, has not been seen in public since a military coup in February removed her from office.
Meanwhile Myanmar’s army spokesman told media that Ms Suu Kyi is being treated well while under house arrest.
But Ms Suu Kyi’s lawyers said that the military junta has banned them from speaking publicly about her case, and United Nations officials demanding to see her have not been allowed into the country.
The UN has said that the military crackdown could amount to crimes against humanity, but its envoys have repeatedly been denied access to Myanmar to investigate.
