Myanmar coup: Aung San Suu Kyi faces multiple charges, detained till 15 February
After the coup in Myanmar on Monday, the police there have made many allegations against the leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
She has been sent to custody till 15 February. Aung San Suu Kyi has been accused of violating the rules of import-export and possessing telecom equipment illegally.
However, more information on where she has been kept is yet undisclosed. But there are reports that she has been kept locked in her house in the capital, Napidav.
Since the army took power on February 1, neither Aung San Suu Kyi nor President Vin Min has received any statement nor has they been seen publicly.
The overthrown President Win Min has also been charged with several charges. According to the documents, he has been accused of violating the rules banning the gathering of people during the Covid-19 epidemic. He too has been sent to police custody for two weeks.
Army General Min Ong Hling, who followed the coup, has imposed a year of emergency in the country. During this time, a military government of eleven members has been elected to watch the functioning of the country.
The army has justified the coup by saying that the elections were rigged last year. In these elections, Aung San Suu Kyi's party National League for Democracy won unilaterally.
