Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of Myanmar imprisoned by the junta, will remain in prison until at least Wednesday. Her lawyer, Khin Maung Zhao, told reporters in Nay Pyi Taw, the capital of Myanmar, on Monday that she should appear in court that day.
The lawyer initially thought Aung San Suu Kyi should appear in court on Monday. However, the judge informed him that the prime minister would remain in pretrial detention until at least February 17. She will attend the hearing on Wednesday via video link.
At the beginning of February, the Myanmar army staged a coup because, according to the army leadership, there had been fraud in the elections at the end of last year. Then the army lost a lot and Aung San Suu Kyi’s party won many seats.
There have been demonstrations in the country since the coup. In several protests, the army deployed tear gas, and water cannons and fires were fired. It was not clear if the army used rubber bullets or fired at them with acute focus.
On Sunday, the country’s internet was cut off during the protests. The four largest communications networks were inaccessible since 01:00 local time. Internet traffic is now possible again.
