Myanmar Military Junta Reports Aung San Suu Kyi Moved to House Arrest

BANGKOK (AP) — Aung San Suu Kyi, the former ruler of Myanmar, was transferred from a prison to house arrest for preventive health reasons due to the heat wave sweeping the country, the Burmese military government said Tuesday.

Military spokesman Maj. Gen. Zaw Min Tun told foreign press representatives that Suu Kyi, 78, and her former government president Win Myint, 72, were among the sick and elderly prisoners held. They were removed from prison due to the intense heat. The measure has not yet been publicly announced in Myanmar.

Suu Kyi is serving a 27-year sentence in the capital Naypyidaw on various charges that her supporters and human rights groups say were fabricated for political reasons. His democratically elected government was overthrown by the military in February 2021. Win Myint was sentenced to 8 years in prison in Taungoo, Bago region.
