YANGON: Junta Myanmar bakal mendakwa pemimpin yang digulingkan, Aung San Suu Kyi atas tuduhan salah laku rasuah.

Perkara itu disahkan peguam Suu Kyi, Khin Maung Zaw, yang menyifatkan beberapa kes pertuduhan itu berisiko menyebabkan pemimpin itu dipenjarakan untuk tempoh lama.

Menurut Maung Zaw, Suu Kyi dijangka di bawa ke muka pengadilan atas empat pertuduhan salah laku rasuah sejak 1 Oktober lalu di Naypyidaw.

Setiap pertuduhan itu membawa hukuman penjara maksimum 15 tahun jika sabit kesalahan.

Suu Kyi kini berada dalam tahanan di kediamannya sejak beliau dan kerajaan yang dipilih rakyat digulingkan oleh tentera dalam rampasan kuasa Februari lalu, sekali gus menyebabkan berlakunya pemberontakan dan kekejaman pihak berkuasa.

Pemenang anugerah Nobel berusia 76 tahun itu kini dibicarakan atas dakwaan melanggar sekatan COVID-19 ketika pemilihan yang menyaksikan kemenangan ke atas partinya tahun lalu selepas membawa masuk walkie talkie secara tidak sah dan kesalahan merusuh.

Kes yang sedang dibicarakan membabitkan Suu Kyi ditangguhkan selama dua bulan berikutan Myanmar bergelut dengan peningkatan kes COVID-19 dan ia bersambung kembali minggu ini.

Suu Kyi bagaimanapun tidak hadir pada hari pertama sambungan perbicaraan itu atas masalah kesihatan.

Pihak media tidak dibenarkan membuat sebarang liputan sepanjang prosiding kes berjalan.

Pihak junta turut mendakwa Suu Kyi atas pertuduhan menerima bayaran secara tidak sah membabitkan emas dan melanggar undang-undang kerahsiaan era penjajahan namun ia belum diadili di mahkamah sehingga kini.

Kerajaan Suu Kyi di bawah Liga Demokrasi Nasional (NLD) digulingkan tentera atas tuduhan penipuan undian ketika pilihan raya pada 2020, sekali gus mencetuskan keadaan huru-hara yang membawa kelumpuhan ekonomi di negara itu.

Menurut kumpulan pemantauan tempatan, susulan itu, lebih 1,100 penduduk negara itu terbunuh manakala kira-kira 8,000 lagi ditahan. – AFP
