Burmese (also known as Myanmar) military junta have expressed their serious concern that they have moved the country’s private leader Aung San Suu Kyi and former president Win Myint from their residence in the capital to an “unknown place.” According to safety.

Since seizing power in the February 1 coup, the two have been detained by the country’s powerful army.

“I heard from credible sources that President Win Myint and State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi have been moved to another unknown location,” said a shadow government formed by the National League for Democracy’s party and allies, also known as the National Unity Government of Myanmar. Said in a statement on Monday.

Suu Kyi, who once defended the military’s brutal crackdown on the Rohingya minority in the International Court of Justice, faces six criminal accusations, including infringement and agitation of state secrets. Win Myint has also been charged with sedition and violation of the COVID-19 restriction.

Kin Maung Sau, head of the legal defense team of the two leaders, said Suu Kyi told lawyers at a pre-court meeting on May 24 that she had been moved to a strange location a day ago. It was.

“After the court hearing, we lawyers haven’t had any contact with her,” he said. “Since she is a very beloved leader in our state, we have been very worried about her safety from day one, and such concerns are still there.”

Named the administration the “Terrorist Military Council,” the National Unity Government repeatedly sought to ensure accountability and justice, and urged the military government to take responsibility for post-coup and ethnic actions.
