Myanmar court jails Aung Kyi aides for sedition


A Myanmar junta court on Thursday sentenced two close aides of ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi to two years in jail for sedition, a legal source said.

The sentence, passed in a special court inside Yangon’s Insein prison, is the latest blow struck in the military authorities’ legal campaign against Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy.

The country has been in turmoil since February 1, when the generals deposed Suu Kyi’s civilian government after the NLD won a general election. –AFP
