Suu Kyi back in court after health no-show
Ousted Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi returned to court yesterday to face charges of incitement and flouting Covid restrictions, her lawyer said, a day after failing to appear on health grounds.
Suu Kyi's government was deposed by the military in a February coup that sparked a mass uprising and a brutal junta crackdown on dissent that killed more than 1,000 civilians.
Monday's hearing was adjourned after Suu Kyi suffered from what her lawyer said was "car sickness".
Journalists are barred from the proceedings against Suu Kyi, who also faces charges of sedition, accepting illegal payments of gold and violating a colonial-era secrecy law.
Myanmar's junta chief said last month that elections would be held and a state of emergency lifted by August 2023, extending the initial one-year timeline the military announced days after the coup.
