The former leader, who was ousted in a military coup last year, has already been sentenced to six years in prison in other cases and faces ten other corruption charges. In all, the penalties can add up to more than one hundred years in prison if she is convicted in all cases.

Suu Kyi became world-renowned by passing 10 years under house arrest for leading a non-violent struggle for democracy in Myanmar. For this, he received the Nobel Peace Prize for 2000.

However, after winning elections and becoming the country’s leader, in 2011, had his image tarnished by accusations of having covered up and even defended human rights violations in Myanmar carried out by the military – such as the repression of the Rohingya Muslim minority, classified as genocide by the UN.
