The United Nations and Britain have condemned the verdict against Aung San Suu Kyi

Sookie has also been accused of election fraud, corruption and breach of official secrecy law.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on Monday condemned the verdict of the Myanmar military jury that sentenced Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to four years in prison. . AFP reported.

The current President of Myanmar Win Mjin has asked for a similar verdict on the same charge.

“Punishment following a fraud and secret trial before a court under military control is nothing more than a politically motivated sentence,” Bachelet said in a statement.

In response to the verdict against Suu Kyi, British Foreign Secretary Lis Truss called the prison sentence “another frightening attempt by the Myanmar military regime to suppress opposition, freedom and democracy.”

“The United Kingdom has called on the Myanmar government to release political prisoners, negotiate and allow them to return to democracy.

The ruling was previously condemned by human rights group Amnesty International, which has accused the Myanmar regime of trying to “destroy the opposition” and “falsely accuse” Myanmar of independence.

Seventy-six-year-old Aung San Suu Kyi has been in prison since the military overthrew its civilian government on February 1 this year, ending a short-lived democracy in Myanmar. The military coup took place on the opening day of the newly elected parliament.

Sookie has also been charged with electoral fraud, corruption and breach of official secrecy – the AFP recalls, and could face up to decades in prison if convicted.
