Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi and Australian adviser sentenced to three years’ jail

Growing outrage after a Myanmar court handed down a jail term of three more years to ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Her former economic adviser Sean Turnell — an Australian citizen — has also been slapped with the same sentence. Both were charged under the country’s Official Secrets Act, in what many have criticised as a cover for political motives. Ms Suu Kyi’s latest sentence means she will now serve 23 years behind bars in total. The 77-year-old Nobel peace laureate still faces ongoing corruption trials.
