The leader of the ousted National League for Democracy Party, Aung San Suu Kyi, on Monday, appeared in person, in court, since February coup, when she was detained by the military forces in Myanmar.

Kyi’s lawyer, Min Min Soe, said she was allowed to speak with her client for 30 minutes. She also noted that, Suu Kyi, was healthy and vibrant, and encouraged the (NLD) party to be optimistic, that the party would continue to exist.

The lawyer in quoted terms said, “We met with Suu for 30 minutes. There wasn’t much time to talk, but she sounded healthy and fully confident.

“She wishes her people to stay healthy, and affirmed that the NLD, (National League for Democracy), will exist, as long as the people exist, because it was founded for the people,”, Min Min Soe added.

Nobel Laureate Suu Kyi has been hit with a string of criminal charges, including flouting coronavirus restrictions during last year’s election campaign, and possessing unlicensed walkie talkies.

Myanmar junta had threatened to dissolve her National League Democracy political party, which swept elections in 2020, over alleged voters fraud.

She has not been seen in public, since she was placed under house arrest by the (junta) military, with wells of delay over her legal case and her lawyer struggling to gain access to their client.

“The road leading to the specially constructed court house, was barricaded by the heavy security operatives,” a correspondent from AFP, reported.
