  • Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi set to appear in court

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi is set to appear before the court on Monday (March 1) to face charges after she was detained by the police in a military coup last month.

The 75-year-old has been kept incommunicado since Army Chief Min Aung Hlaing seized power in the early hours of Feb. 1. Suu Kyi faces a charge of violating a Natural Disaster Management Law as well as charges of illegally importing six walkie talkie radios.
