(CHINDWIN): In defying the calls of the United Nations Security Council to release all political prisoners, including President Win Myint and Aung San Suu Kyi, the junta regime’s Nay Pyi Taw military court has handed former state counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi a seven-year jail term today, securing a life sentence for the former head of state behind bars.
Despite the former Vice President 2 – Henry Van Thio declaring that President Win Myint and former State Counsellor were innocent as he was the one purchasing the helicopter and did it so in accordion with the law during his surprised summon at the Nay Pyi Taw court on 13 December, the military junta is not convinced but stick to their old plan.
Today, Aung San Suu Kyi is handed another seven years of jail term for purchasing a helicopter for the country, adding 26 years already sentenced to 33 years in total.
The case the junta regime laid down upon the former State Counsellor is a laughingstock for the citizens of Myanmar, as the purchase of a helicopter is not for her personal use but for the nation.
Aung Sann Suu Kyi has been given 26 years jail term in the past as the junta regime made several charges against her, and today’s verdict is the last straw of the regime’s legal attempt to permanently put her behind bars.
