Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's appeal was accepted by the Supreme Court of the union.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's appeal was accepted by the Supreme Court of the union.

State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has been accused and being jailed by the Military Council, and the Supreme Court of the Union accepted the case on April 19th and accepted the case for both sides to plead.


From the Supreme Court of the Union often rejecting State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's appeals and now the Supreme Court has accepted the appeal filed against the conviction for corruption in the purchase, the allegation of election fraud under Section 130 (a) of the Penal Code, and the amendment filed against the conviction under Section 3 (1) (c) of the Myanmar Government Secrets Act.

The United Nations Human Rights Council held a meeting in Geneva, Switzerland in early April, urging the military junta to immediately release President U Win Myint, state counselor Daw Aung San Su Kyi and those who were unjustly arrested, and within that 15days after the meeting the military council has accepted the appeal of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's case.

After the military seized power, 78-year-old Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was charged with 19 cases and sentenced to a total of 33 years in prison.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's side filed appeals against all of those punishments after the military council court-imposed punishments on the cases.

It is known that the military council court is preparing to file a special appeal for six cases, including the natural disaster management law and defamation of the state, which were initially ordered against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.

On the other hand, legal experts point out that it is unfair for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to not be allowed to meet with her lawyers despite accepting that the cases will be heard.

78-year-old Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to 33 years in prison for 19 cases and is being held in solitary confinement in a small building in Nay Pyi Taw Prison.
