Nay Pyi Taw – A Myanmar court sentenced the ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her former economist Sean Turnel to three years in prison. The punishment is for violating the Official Secrets Act. Suu Kyi was forced to resign after the army took power last year.

A lawsuit has also been filed against Ternal, from Australia, for violating immigration law. Ternell is Professor of Economics at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. He was Suu Kyi’s special economic advisor during his tenure. He was placed under house arrest a few days after the military coup. Australia has demanded his immediate release.

Seventy-seven-year-old Suchi, also a Nobel laureate, has already been sentenced to 23 years in various cases. He reiterated that the charges against her were politically motivated.
