The Trial in Myanmar for Aung San Suu Kyi Will Start on June 14, 2021

Lawyers for Myanmar’s deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi have said her trial will begin next week. The Nobel laureate faces a raft of criminal charges, including possessing unlicensed walkie-talkies and violating Coronavirus restrictions.
Her trial is scheduled to begin on June 14, 2021, and will conclude on July 26, 2021, her legal team told the AFP news agency on Monday., Myanmar has been in chaos since the military seized power on February 1, 2021, and detained Aung San Suu Kyi and other elected leaders.
This has resulted in near-daily protests and a nationwide civil disobedience movement. There have been 849 deaths and 4,500 arrests.
Since May 24, 2021, when she attended a 30-minute court hearing, Aung San Suu Kyi, 75, has been under house arrest in Myanmar’s capital, Naypyidaw.
Just twice has she been allowed to meet with her lawyers since she was placed under house arrest, and her case has been delayed for weeks.
Lawyer Min Min Soe told AFP on Monday after meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi in Naypyidaw that the next hearing will include testimony from plaintiffs and witnesses.
ASEAN’s envoys also discussed implementing a Five-Point Consensus reached during talks between the senior general and Southeast Asian leaders in April 2021.
The consensus calls for an end to violence, political talks, and the appointment of a regional envoy.
During the ASEAN-China foreign ministers’ meeting in Chongqing this week, Myanmar’s crisis is also expected to be discussed. Wunna Maung Lwin, the military’s foreign minister, will also attend.
Global Times reported that Myanmar was willing to coordinate the implementation of the consensus. The ambassador told the paper that China was ready to support the implementation of the consensus.
