Myanmar’s Military Court Sentences State Counselor and President To 4 Years In Prison For Covid-19 Violations


This is where the road of authoritarianism takes you.

Myanmar’s military court has just sentenced State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint to 4 years in prison after they allegedly violated Covid-19 protocols.

The country of Myanmar has been under military control after General Min Aung Hlaing seized power over the country the day before pro-Democracy officials were set to be inaugurated into office.

Since the military take over in Myanmar thousands of pro-democracy protestors have been slain for exercising their  freedom of speech and Christian minorities in Chin state have also been under attack by the military regime.

Sky News had more on the story:

Myanmar’s deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi has received a two-year jail sentence as a court delivers the first verdicts in a number of cases which could see her imprisoned for decades.

The 76-year-old, who has been in detention since 1 February when the military seized power in a coup, was initially jailed for four years but the sentence has since been reduced to two.

She received the four-year term on Monday on charges of incitement and breaking COVID-19 restrictions.

Myanmar’s ousted president Win Myint was given the same jail sentence, while Dr Myo Aung, the former mayor of Naypyidaw, was given a two-year sentence.

Journalists are barred from entering the court and Ms Suu Kyi’s lawyers have been banned from speaking to the press.

Supporters of Ms Suu Kyi claim the charges are bogus and an attempt to block her from returning to power.

In response Secretary of State Antony Blinken does what he does best and that’s offer words of condemnation when countries are over taken by dictatorial regimes/terrorists.

The United States used to be a nation of action now we are seen as a nation that offers rhetoric.

Fox News had more on the story:

Aung San Suu Kyi, the 76-year-old former leader of Burma who was ousted earlier this year during a military coup, was sentenced Monday to four years in prison on charges of incitement and violating COVID-19 restrictions, reports said.

Suu Kyi’s trial was conducted behind closed doors and her conviction could further inflame protesters in the country that has grappled with violent protests and a tanking economy.

On Sunday alone, an army vehicle plowed into a peaceful march by anti-government protesters in Yangon, reportedly killing three.

Users on Gab and Parler cheerleading for the military regime in Myanmar(they have taken  photo of Obama and Suu Kyi out of context) but anyone who is cheerleading for the persecution of Christians and for free speech.

President Trump previously put sanction on Gen. Min Aung Hlaing and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo even warned the Biden admin a coup could take place but they didn’t take their advice.

Here’s the receipt:

This is the kind of action that Myanmar’s military does on a daily basis, take a look:
