Aung San Suu Kyi has no information on outside world: Legal team Updated: 2021-05-25 13:42:05 KST

Myanmar's state TV on Monday showed still photos of ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi for the first time since the military coup in February.
The images also showed her first in-person court appearance since her arrest.
With two police officers standing by her side, she appeared on screen, alongside President Win Myint and former Naypyitaw mayor Myo Aung.
The ousted leader had a chance to speak privately to her legal team, who said little is known about her detention.

"Firstly, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi asked where this place is. We (legal team) told her that it is in Naypyitaw council compound, but number of the place we don't know exactly. Then Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said she also didn't know where she was kept."

While she looked in good health during the 30-minute meeting with her legal team, her top lawyer said she had no access to newspapers, and was only partially aware of what was happening outside.
Her legal team also noted that Aung San Suu Kyi expressed support for the National League for Democracy party, saying it will be there as long as the people are, because the party was founded for the people.
Her remarks come as the junta-appointed Union Election Commission called for the NLD party to be abolished, citing alleged voter fraud in last November's election.
It has also threatened action against who they called the "traitors" involved.
The ousted leader has been under house arrest since she was taken into custody in the hours following the coup.
The new military regime has filed six charges against her.
Her next hearing is set for June 7th.
