Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four years in prison – how is the situation in Myanmar?

On December 6th , Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced in Myanmar to 4 years in prison for inciting public outrage and for failing to comply with sanitary measures. Other party leaders have been accused of corruption and electoral fraud. This despite the fact that they won the parliamentary elections. What is the current situation in Myanmar and how will it continue. Our MP Gusty Graas inquired at the relevant ministry.

« Malgré la victoire de son parti aux élections législatives, l’ancienne dirigeante en Birmanie, Aung San Suu Kyi, avait été arrêtée lors du coup d’État de l’armée birmane en février 2021. Ce lundi 6 décembre 2021, inculpée pour incitation aux troubles et au « soulèvement », Aung San Suu Kyi fût condamnée à quatre ans de prison. Outre une violation des mesures sanitaires en temps de pandémie, l’ancienne dirigeante civile fait face à d’autres accusations telles, entre autres, la corruption et la fraude électorale. L’ancien président du Myanmar a également été condamné.

Dans ce contexte, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires étrangères et européennes :

  • Quelle est la situation politique actuelle au Myanmar ?
  • La communauté internationale juge-t-elle légitime le procès mené par la cour pénale de Naypyidaw ? Quelles conséquences pourraient, le cas échéant, être tirées de cette évolution ?
  • Quelle est l’attitude de Monsieur le Ministre face à ces procès ? »
