Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi faces new corruption charge

Myanmar’s military government has filed an eleventh corruption accusation against deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the latest in a series of charges against the Nobel laureate, who faces a jail sentence of more than 150 years.

The latest case was revealed on Thursday, as the military allegedly conducted further attacks on civilians in the northern Sagaing district, destroying up to 400 houses and causing thousands of people to escape.

According to the military’s information team, police have filed a new corruption accusation against Aung San Suu Kyi for allegedly accepting $550,000 as a contribution for a charitable organisation named after her mother.

As reported by a local monitoring organisation, Aung San Suu Kyi, 76, has been held since the February 1 coup, which sparked large protests and a brutal assault on dissent, killing over 1,500 people.
