    Graft convictions extend Suu Kyi’s prison term to 26 years

    BANGKOK (AP) – A court in military-ruled Myanmar convicted the country’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi on two more corruption charges on Wednesday, with two three-year sentences to be served concurrently, adding to previous convictions that now leave her with a 26-year total prison term, a legal official said.

    Suu Kyi, 77, was detained on February 1, 2021, when the military seized power from her elected government. She denied the allegations against her in this case, in which she was accused of receiving USD550,000 as a bribe from Maung Weik, a tycoon convicted of drug trafficking.
