[천지일보=이솜 기자] Myanmar’s military regime in a coup d’état on the 10th sentenced Aung San Suu Kyi, 76-year-old state adviser, to an additional four years in prison, increasing the total sentence to six years.

In December of last year, for violating the Corona 19 regulations during the election campaign and for instigating the election campaign, the sentence was added four years to the two-year sentence.

This time, it was reported that he was convicted on two charges related to illegally importing and owning radios and a charge of violating COVID-19 quarantine measures. The court found Shame Advisor guilty of violating Myanmar’s export-import and telecommunication laws by possessing a walkie-talkie. His lawyers argued that the radio was about the security of the torture and had political motives, but it was allegedly rejected.

Reporters will not be able to attend the sentencing, and Suu Kyi’s lawyers will not be able to speak to the press.

The charge of illegal importation of radios was added on February 1, last year, on the day of the coup, when soldiers allegedly raided the house of Suu Kyi and found contraband.

In addition to this charge, Shame Advisor is also awaiting trial on at least seven charges, including bribery, corruption, and violation of public secret laws. If found guilty of all charges, shame torture could face up to 89 years in prison, the New York Times reported today.

Suu Kyi is detained at a house in the Myanmar capital, Nay Pyi Taw, with lost contact.
