New graft cases against Suu Kyi

Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi

Yangon, June 10

New corruption cases have been opened against Myanmar's deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other former officials from her government, the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar said on Thursday.

The cases are the latest of a series brought against elected leader Suu Kyi, 75, who was overthrown by the army on Feb. 1 in a coup.

The state newspaper quoted the Anti-Corruption Commission saying the accusations related to the misuse of land for the charitable Daw Khin Kyi Foundation, which she chaired, as well as earlier accusations of accepting money and gold. It said case files had been opened against Suu Kyi and several other officials. —Reuters
