Aung San Suu Kyi ‘in Good Health,’ Says Lawyer After First Meeting Since Coup

Detained Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi is “in good health,” said the lead lawyer defending her in court cases brought by the junta that overthrew her elected government two months ago following their first meeting on Wednesday.

The deposed state counselor, 75, spoke with junior attorney Min Min Soe via video conference in the presence of police on both sides, with Aung San Suu Kyi saying that she would later “come down in person” to meet privately with her legal team, head defense attorney Khin Maung Zaw told RFA.

“They were not able to discuss anything except the case,” he said. “She was in good health, and she had asked the police guarding her to allow her to meet with all six of her lawyers.”

Two previous hearings were cancelled because of regime-imposed internet service cutoffs. Aung San Suu Kyi, under house arrest in the capital Naypyidaw, has her next court hearing via video conference on Thursday.

Khin Maung Zaw also said he heard that another case had been opened against Aung San Suu Kyi in Yangon, but that he had not yet received formal notice. There was no immediate reply to her requests.

Aung San Suu Kyi faces four other charges for alleged incitement and sedition, violation of telecommunication laws, possession of unlicensed walkie-talkie radios, and violation of the Natural Disaster Management Law for breaching COVID-19 pandemic restrictions during the 2020 election campaign.

The military regime also has launched a corruption investigation of Aung San Suu Kyi for allegedly accepting U.S. $600,000 and gold from detained Yangon region chief Phyo Min Thein and a businessman.

Dozens of other officials from the state counselor’s National League for Democracy also have been detained by the military junta that seized power in a Feb. 1 coup,

Kyaw Kyaw, an NLD official in Naypyidaw’s Zabuthiri township, was killed by soldiers in police during his detention, family and close friends said Wednesday, a day after they were called to inspect his body before cremation.

Arrested on March 15, he is third the NLD official to be killed in custody by the military regime.

Family members and close friends said in Facebook posts that Kyaw Kyaw died after being tortured.

“Kyaw Kyaw, who lives in Gon Min Inn village in Zabuthiri township, was arrested on March 15,” said a post written by Mal Chaw. “On March 30, the military notified the family to come and see the body. The family visited the body this morning and held funeral rites at home.”

Phyo Zeya Thaw, a former NLD lawmaker from Zabuthiri township, wrote on his Facebook page that Kyaw Kyaw, who “was unjustly arrested on March 15, has died at the hands of a military terrorists’ interrogation camp.”

Protests continue

The beatings and shootings have not stopped protesters from taking to the streets to oppose the two-month-old military regime.

More than 500 protesters, bystanders, and others have been killed in anti-junta rallies that have rocked the country since the coup took place.

Anti-junta protesters held rallies and marches across the country, with people in the commercial hub Yangon banging pots and pans, honking the cars, and displaying a three-finger salute of defiance along the route where a CNN reporter was traveling with soldiers in a military convoy.

The military regime let the report into the country, despite having banned five domestic news outlets and detaining 53 journalists since the coup took place, though 29 have been released with two of them out on bail.

At least 16 people died in the past 48 hours during nighttime crackdowns, residents in several locations said.

In Yangon’s South Dagon township, residents reported that security forces barged into homes and shot anyone they came across with guns and heavy weaponry, forcing many locals to flee the area.

The conflict over the coup has also spilled over into the Myanmar military’s difficult relations with the country’s many ethnic armed organizations, some of whom have sheltered and supported protesters fleeing arrest.

At least 10 people have been killed and many injured under repeated air strikes by the Myanmar military in rebel-controlled areas of Kayin state since Mar. 27, while thousands of villagers have fled to safety in the Thai border region.

Thai military authorities have been expelling displaced Karen villagers who fled across the border as a result of the fighting between government troops and the Karen National Union (KNU), an armed ethnic organization that controls some of the state’s territory.

Eleven civilians were killed and five injured when two jet fighters attacked their villages in the KNU 3rd Brigade territory Tuesday, residents said, adding that the jets had made reconnaissance flights over the area between Mar. 27 and 29.

The 11 were company employees who died when two military jets bombed a gold mining plot at Madama Creek in Shwegyin township of neighboring Bago region, killing, said the chairman of the Karen Social Welfare Organization in Shwegyin.

“At about 12:10 p.m. when the planes bombed the gold mine, 11 workers on the team led by Moe Aung were killed, [and] another five were wounded,” he said. “There had never been bombings here before, and the KNU is now working with us to provide as much medical treatment as possible.”

‘Hiding in a hut’

Military jets launched similar attacks Wednesday on Mae Panwa and Mae Wai villages in Hpapun township in the KNU’s 5th Brigade region, causing many casualties.

“Most of the villagers fled their homes,” said one resident who declined to be named for safety reasons. “We were hiding in a hut and saw the bombs dropping and dared not go outside.

RFA could not reach junta spokesman Maj. Gen. Zaw Min Tun for comment.

The air strikes followed the fall of a military base camp in which a deputy battalion commander and nine others were killed by the KNU.

At least 13 civilians, including a five-year-old child, were killed by air strikes in KNU-controlled areas between Mar. 28 and 30, according to the Free Burma Rangers, a multiethnic humanitarian service movement.

More than 10,000 people have fled the region 8and headed to the Thai border, though the Thai Army has sent back about 3,000 of them, despite the government saying that it had made arrangements for more than 40,000 refugees, according to news reports.

Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CPRH), a shadow parliament of lawmakers who won November 2020 elections, said in a statement Wednesday that air strikes on indigenous armed forces, such as the KNU, were inhumane acts.

The CRPH said it would find ways to protect the lives and property of indigenous populations throughout the country and provide humanitarian assistance.

The Three Brotherhood Alliance of rebel groups — the Arakan Army (AA), Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), and Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) has not yet decided whether to extend a temporary truce with the Myanmar military that expires Wednesday.

The alliance issued a statement Tuesday condemning crackdowns on anti-junta protesters and other civilians and said warned it would support and cooperate with those who are waging the Myanmar Spring Revolution, if the violence did not stop.

Locals in northern Rakhine state have expressed concern that fighting between Myanmar forces and the AA will resume after a four-month hiatus.

“Fighting will continue if the Myanmar military launches an offensive,” said AA spokesman Khine Thukha on Wednesday. “Now, the Myanmar Army is attacking both Karen state and Kachin state, … so whether there be fighting in other places or not, it depends a lot on the movement of the Myanmar military and various situations ahead.”

CRPH repeals constitution

The CRPH on Wednesday announced the repeal of the 2008 constitution, written by a previous military junta that ruled Myanmar, saying that the charter was designed to prolong the military dictatorship and prevent the emergence of a democratic federal union.

The Feb. 1 seizure of government power by military force violated the constitution nullifying its legality, the body said in a statement.

At the same time, the CRPH issued a 20-page Federal Democracy Charter to establish a democratic federal union guaranteeing equality and self-determination and said that Mann Win Khaing Than will, the acting leader of Myanmar’s parallel civilian government, appointed by ousted lawmakers following the coup, would continue to run the country.

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines
