New corruption charges levelled against Suu Kyi
New corruption charges levelled against Suu Kyi

Yangon, March 19 (TIWN) New corruption allegations against Aung Sang Suu Kyi, the detained former de-facto leader of Myanmar, were aired on national television on Thursday, as the military seemed to seek to strengthen the case for its February 1 coup against her government.

In all, Weik said he had handed over a total of $550,000 during four separate incidents.  A news reader said the businessman has been found guilty of bribery and that the country's anti-corruption commission is investigating.  After Suu Kyi was dislodged by the February 1 coup, the military has piled on charges against her, from illegally importing walkie-talkies to sowing disorder by inducing others to commit offences against the state to mishandling the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic.  When queried by DPA, Khin Maung Zaw, a lawyer for Suu Kyi, dismissed the new allegations.
