The deposed former Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi left her house arrest to be placed in solitary confinement in a prison complex in Naypyidaw, the capital built by the military, the ruling junta announced on Thursday. “In accordance with criminal laws…she is being kept in solitary confinement in prison,” Zaw Min Tun, a spokesman for the junta, said in a statement. Since her ousting in a coup last year, Suu Kyi had been under house arrest at an undisclosed location in Naypyidaw, accompanied by several domestic workers and her dog, according to people familiar with the matter. p>

The 77-year-old Nobel laureate was only out to attend the hearings of her river trial where she faces a total of decades in prison. His lawyers are barred from speaking to the media and journalists cannot attend his trial. Under the rule of a previous junta, she spent many years under house arrest at her family estate in Yangon, Burma's largest city.

As part of his current detention, his links with the outside world are limited to brief meetings with his lawyers before the hearings. She has already been found guilty of bribery, incitement to violence, violation of health rules related to Covid-19 as well as violation of the telecommunications law and a court sentenced her to 11 years in prison.
