[Myanmar] State Counselor to face one more charge, next court hearing on April 26

The State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi has been further charged with Section 25 under the natural disaster law at the court hearing today in Zabuthiri Township in Nay Pyi Taw. President Win Myint and Dr Myo Aung also had their trial today via video conferencing.

This is the fifth accusation in Nay Pyi taw to be leveled at her.There is one lawsuit under the official state secrets act 3(1)(C)/9 from Yangon. 

"So there already were three charges on Amay (mother) including under the natural disaster laws. On top of that, the plaintiff U Nyi Nyi aka U Tun Myint Aung says that there is an additional charge, also under the natural disaster law under Section 25. So Amay requested for me to get attorney power for that and requested all of the lawyers to continue on," said attorney Daw Min Min Soe.

She continued, "I saw Amay via (video) conferencing but it's not only her so there were Amay Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, U Win Myint and Dr Myo Aung. The three at once were put on trial for No.35 and No.505 of the criminal code. Their next  session will be at April 26. Both Amaay and the President said that the request for a face to face meeting with their lawyers haven't been approved. I have also requested for this since awhile back. I still have not recieved anything. I asked court officials and they say that the request is being forwarded up the chain of command.

So for the three cases specifically for Amay. For those 3, a separate conferncing was held and a separate court date was given. As for the President, us attorneys have yet to receive confirmation of the attorney power so we requested for them again and they said that they will work on in and scheduled the next hearing on April 26."

President Win Myin face charges under Section 25 Natural Disaster Management Law and Section 505(b) while State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is facing charges under Section 25 Natural Disaster Management Law, Export Import Law Section (8), Communication Law Section 67 and Section 505(b) with an additional new one also for natural disaster management. Nay Pyi Taw Council's Dr Myo Aung is facing Section 505(b).
