Suu Kyi, who is dizzy and tired, skips court appearances in Myanmar

Recommended Posts



Deposed Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's leader, was unable to attend a court hearing on Monday due to health issues, according to a member of her legal team, who described her condition as dizziness induced by motion sickness.

Suu Kyi, who has been held on numerous charges since her removal in a military coup on Feb. 1, did not have the coronavirus but felt poorly after not travelling in a car for a long time, according to her counsel Min Min Soe.


The Nobel Peace Prize recipient has spent nearly half of the last three decades in various types of incarceration as a result of her nonviolent resistance against dictatorship, and her health is being meticulously monitored.

"It's not a life-threatening illness...
She was sick in the car.
She couldn't tolerate it any longer and told us she needed to relax "Reuters spoke with Min Min Soe.


Suu Kyi's main contact with the outside world has been through her legal team, which claims that their access to her is restricted and closely watched by authorities.

On Tuesday, she is scheduled to appear in court.
When contacted again on Monday evening, Min Min Soe stated that the legal team did not have access to Suu Kyi's current status, but that her illness was minimal.


The ruling military's spokesman did not return calls seeking comment.

She is facing charges of illegally importing and possessing walkie-talkie radios, as well as breaking coronavirus standards, in the capital, Naypyitaw.
