New corruption charges leveled against former de facto ruler of Burma


“New charges of corruption have been leveled against the former de facto ruler of Burma, Aung San Suu Kyi, who was overthrown by a coup,” the official “Global New Light of Myanmar” newspaper quoted by AFP as saying.

The newspaper pointed out that “Aung San Suu Kyi was accused of receiving “600,000 dollars and kilograms of gold in bribes, and misusing land owned by the Daw Khin Chi Foundation for charity that she chairs,” stressing that the “Anti-Corruption Commission” saw She had committed acts of corruption by using her position, so charges were brought against her under Article 55 of the Anti-Corruption Law.

“These accusations are absurd and the aim is to keep her away from the country’s political scene and tarnish her image,” the lawyer for the former ruler, Khin Maung Zaw, told AFP.
