Myanmar’s former leader Aung San Suu Kyi jailed for a further seven years – BBC News

A Myanmar military court has sentenced Aung San Suu Kyi to a further seven years in prison, taking her overall jail time to 33 years.

The country’s former democratically-elected leader has been under house arrest since a military ousted her government in a coup in February 2021.

Since then, she’s faced 18 months of trials on 19 charges – which rights groups have said are a sham.

The UN Security Council called for her release last week.
