A court in Myanmar has sentenced the country’s deposed leader San Suu to four years in jail, according to media reports.

A government spokesman told the AFP news agency on Monday that Aung Suu received two years imprisonment for incitement and two years for violating COVID-19 rules.

Min Tun said another former was also jailed for four years under the same charges.

He said the pair will not be taken to prison yet as they will face other charges from the places where they are staying now” in the capital city, without giving further details.

Monday’s ruling is the first in a dozen cases Myanmar’s military has brought against Aung San Suu Kyi.
