Myanmar's ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been charged with breaking an official secrets law, the most serious charge against her yet.
Speaking to Reuters, her lawyer also confirmed three of her deposed cabinet ministers and an Australian economic adviser were charged a week ago in a Yangon court, but only learned of the new charge two days ago.
If convicted of that charge,.. she could get up to 14 years in prison.
Aung San Suu Kyi and other members of her National League for Democracy have been detained since the February 1st coup.
They have also been charged with illegally importing handheld radios and breaching COVID-19 protocols.
