Myanmar’s deposed civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi appeared via video in a Naypyidaw court on Monday to face charges the international community widely believes are frivolous.
Her lawyer, Khin Maung Zaw, told AFP the 75-year-old appeared healthy during the court hearing.
She had not been seen in public since the coup on 1 February.
Suu Kyi is facing obscure criminal charges for possessing unlicensed walkie-talkies as well as violating coronavirus restrictions by staging a campaign event during last year’s election.
The veteran human rights lawyer said he had been unable to speak with his client ahead of the hearing.
