Suu Kyi sentenced to four years in prison in two sentences of Burmese justice

The overthrough Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced this Monday to a total of four years in prison for violating the laws implemented against the pandemic and by the illegal importation of telecommunications devices, Efe said sources close to the case.

In two separate processes, a Special Court of Justice issued this morning the sentence, delayed two times, by the underserised tenure of several Walkie-Talkies and a signal inhibitor, by which Suu Kyi was accused of violating the law of Export and import and the Telecommunications Law.

In this case, the judges decided to condemn the defendant to 2 and 1 year in prison, respectively, although the penalties will be fulfilled simultaneously, so he will only turn two years in prison.

Suu Kyi was also condemned today to another 2 years in prison for skipping during an electoral act for the elections of November 2020 the measures against the propagation of the COVID-19.

The lawyers of Suu Kyi indicated at the beginning of the judicial process that its representative denies all the accusations, while since October the military board imposed on the lawyers the prohibition of speaking with the media.

The two judgments of today are added to two others issued at the beginning of December, which also added four years in prison, although they were subsequently reduced by a pardon of the military junta.

Suu Kyi, 76, faces numerous launched processes after being overthrown during the military coup d'etat of February 1.

The policy, who remains detained from the first hours of the power of the military and fulfills sentence in an unknown place, is also accused of corruption and violating the law of official secrets, punishable by a maximum of 15 and 14 years in prison , respectively.

The coup dived to Burma in a deep political, social and economic crisis, and opened a spiral of violence with new civilian militias that have exacerbated the war of guerrillas living the country for decades.

The army justifies the blow by an alleged mass fraud during the general elections of November 2020, whose result has been annulled and in which Suu Kyi's party devastated, as he did in 2015, with the guarantee of international observers.

At least 1,447 people have died as a result of the brutal repression exercised by police and soldiers since the coup, who have shot at killing peaceful protesters, according to the daily parties of the Association for the Assistance of Political Prisoners, which also figure in more than 11,400 The opponents stopped, including Suu Kyi.
