The Myanmar military has accused political leader Aung San Suu Kyi of accepting illegal payments and gold. Other political leaders, including President Winnipeg, have been accused of corruption.
According to public and military spokesman Zhao Min Tun, Suu Kyi took 500,000. He says the information has been fully verified and those involved have been investigated. The General provided no evidence for the allegations.
This is the first time the military has ruled the country since early February. Aung San Suu Kyi has been detained in an unknown location for about five weeks. He was previously accused by the military of disrespecting the country’s corona rules, creating fear and illegally possessing radio equipment.
Eight people died
Since then, there have been daily demonstrations in which many young people take part. Eight more protesters were killed by the military today, according to witnesses. In all, more than 60 people have been killed and about 2,000 detained by security forces, activists say.
According to Amnesty International, the military is increasingly using violence against protesters. The human rights group says the security forces are using “war tactics” and deliberately targeting activists.
General Zhou Tun believes that the international community should not be concerned about the unrest in Myanmar. The west direction will also make false assumptions. He told a news conference today that the security forces were using force only when needed.
The army said more than a thousand protesters were released yesterday. Arrests would have been necessary if the activists had turned violent.
