New Delhi, 16 November 2021

As per news report of NDTV, Suu Kyi was accused of "election fraud and lawless actions", state-run newspaper Global New Light of Myanmar reported, without giving details on when court proceedings would begin. Fifteen other officials -- including former president Win Myint and the chairman of the election commission -- faced the same charge, the report added.  Myanmar has been in turmoil since a military coup in February sparked nationwide protests and a deadly crackdown on dissent.  Detained since the putsch, Suu Kyi, 76, faces a raft of charges including illegally importing walkie talkies, sedition and corruption, and faces decades in jail if convicted.
