“Myanmar’s deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been moved to a prison and is being kept in solitary confinement, a junta spokesperson said on Thursday. ‘By the law, it’s confirmed that [Suu Kyi] has been moved to the prison. And she’s been kept at separate confinement well,’ Maj. Gen. Zaw Min Tun said in a statement. Since the military seized power in a coup on February 1, 2021, Suu Kyi has been kept under house arrest at an undisclosed location in the purpose-built capital Naypyidaw. … Suu Kyi’s transfer comes after Myanmar’s military rulers ordered all legal proceedings against her to be moved from a courtroom to a prison, a source familiar with her cases told Reuters on Wednesday.” (06/23/22)
