Police have sought Suu Kyi’s custody for two weeks after charges filed for illegally importing radios, a police document says.
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.
