After the military coup in Myanmar, people are continuously protesting against the dictatorship. Aung San Suu Kyi, who was ousted from power after the coup, is also facing difficulties. According to a leading daily report, Myanmar police have imposed new charges against Aung San Suu Kyi. Aung San’s lawyer has said that due to these charges, Suu Kyi may have to stay in jail indefinitely.
As per the report, Aung San Suu Kyi has been charged under Article 25 of the Natural Disaster Management Act. These clauses have often been used on those who violate corona-related regulations. Suu Kyi may have to remain in custody without trial due to changes in the panel code made by the army. Before this, he has also been accused of possessing an illegally brought walkie-talkie.On the other hand, protests are intensifying in Myanmar’s Yangon and other cities. Protest leaders are raising demands for the release of Aung San Suu and representatives of the army-ousted government. On Monday, there was a clash between security forces and protesters. Internet was banned in Myanmar. The reason for this is also not clear.
The US Embassy in Myanmar has also appealed to US citizens to stay in safe places after witnessing clashes between security forces and protesters. Army personnel have been deployed to prevent protests. The number of students in the protesters is being reported more.
