ER Editor: We’re running a couple of reports back to back here. Several watchful, independent commentators have noted how the rigging in the Myanmar elections at the end of last year broadly echoed the fraud that took place in the US.
Aung San Suu Kyi (see several articles) was basically a George Soros puppet. Myanmar is a country of approximately 55 million; 11 million votes were allegedly found to be irregular in the 2020 election. The Myanmar military claims it had made an appeal to the election commission, which took no notice (similar to the non-action of the US Supreme Court?). Hence the coup d’état on February 1, 2021. It is several members of the election commission, as well as Suu Kyi herself, who have been charged with election fraud and related crimes.
We remind readers of the significance of Myanmar in nefarious activities conducted globally, such as opium production and child trafficking. Myanmar is at the centre of the Golden Triangle (see map below). It is thus likely to be a country of great interest for perpetrators seeking to generate drug production from children as well as poppies. Discerning readers know what is being alluded to here.
Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi Charged for Alleged Electoral Fraud
Myanmar’s junta has set the end of this month as the date for issuing the first verdict in the cases attributed to leader Aung San Suu Kyi over electoral fraud.
Myanmar’s junta has charged leader Aung San Suu Kyi with committing electoral fraud during the 2020 polls, state media reported Tuesday.
Suu Kyi, 76, was arrested just before the February 1 coup. She is facing 11 criminal charges with maximum penalties and could face decades in jail if convicted.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner is one of 16 people, most of whom are former election commissioners, who have been accused of being involved in “electoral fraud and lawless actions”, including sedition, corruption, and violating the Official Secrets Act.
She will hear the verdict in her trial for incitement against the military on November 30, a source with knowledge of the matter told AFP on Tuesday.
In the days after the coup, Suu Kyi and ousted President Win Myint were allegedly involved in circulating an unsigned letter urging foreign countries not to recognize the military council.
Suu Kyi and Win Myint deny the allegations, justifying that they both were in solitary confinement at the time.
In July, the junta canceled the results of the polls, announcing it had uncovered more than 11 million instances of voter irregularities.
The military said it took power because the election commission ignored its complaints that Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy, which won elections last year by an overwhelming majority, rigged the results.
Junta chief Min Aung Hlaing has said fresh elections will be held and a state of emergency lifted by August 2023, extending the initial timeline the military gave when it seized power.
For its part, the UN Security Council expressed its “deep concern” last week about the unrest in Myanmar and called for an “immediate cessation of violence” and for efforts to ensure that civilians are not harmed.
Military junta charges ousted leader Suu Kyi with election-rigging
Sixteen Myanmar ex-officials, including deposed State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint, have been slapped with new charges related to the 2020 election by the Asian country’s military junta.
This week, 15 officials, including Suu Kyi, were charged with crimes related to the alleged rigging of the 2020 vote, the national election body announced on Tuesday. Other targets of the accusations include ousted President Win Myint and the chairman of the election commission.
The November 2020 general election was won by Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy (NLD). On February 1, the country’s powerful military, which ruled as a dictatorship before a shaky transition to a representative democracy a decade earlier, launched a coup, deposing the civilian government. The military claimed the election was rigged in favor of the NLD and against the party they supported. The NLD side denied the claims while international observers said the election was mostly free and fair.
Suu Kyi has been in custody since being overthrown. She is currently being tried for flouting Covid-19 restrictions during campaigning. She was also charged with a number of crimes, from illegal importing of radios to corruption and sedition. The 76-year-old, who spent years under house arrest, faces decades in prison, if convicted.
The military coup was met with resistance by NLD supporters, to which the junta responded with a crackdown. Observers who are critical of the military claim as many as 1,250 people have been killed and over 10,000 arrested over the months of confrontation.
Many lawmakers from the NLD formed a rival government, which in September declared a “people’s defensive war” against military rule. Suu Kyi refrained from commenting on the escalation.
