Myanmar police have filed charges against overthrown leader Aung San Suu Kyi for illegally importing communications equipment and sought her detention until February 15 for investigations, according to a police document.

The Nobel laureate was overthrown and detained by Myanmar’s army, which cut short a transition to democracy in a takeover that has drawn condemnation from the United States and other Western countries. Army chief Min Aung Hlaing seized power, alleging fraud in a November 8 election, which Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) party won in a landslide. The electoral commission has said the vote was fair.
