A court hearing against deposed Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been postponed to March 24.
The court has announced that there are internet problems and that the hearing has therefore been moved.
Aung San Suu Kyi was re-elected as the country’s leader last year, but the military did not accept that and seized it to retake power on February 1. They ruled the country from 1962, when it was still called Burma, until about ten years ago.
Aung San Suu Kyi, 75, was arrested during the coup and is being held in an unknown place. She has to appear in court there via a video link.
She has been accused of somewhat vague law violations such as illegally importing walkie-talkies, violating corona measures, using illegal communication devices, and instilling fear and panic. It is not clear what kind of punishments the prosecutors intend.
There are massive protests all over the country against the coup plotters who are being brutally crushed. On Sunday, at least 44 protesters would have been killed by security forces. The total number of protesters killed since the coup has passed 120.
