Two sessions of Suu Kyi’s trial were postponed by a Myanmar court.

A COURT in military-run Myanmar postponed two hearings in Aung San Suu Kyi’s trial this week, according to a person familiar with the proceedings, after media reports that the ousted leader was not feeling well.

Suu Kyi was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday and Friday to face corruption accusations stemming from the lease and purchase of a helicopter while in office.

Suu Kyi was allowed to miss the hearings at the request of her doctor due to dizziness and nausea, according to the US-funded RFA (Radio Free Asia). The next hearing is scheduled for February 10, according to RFA.

The report on her health and the scheduling of the next hearing could not be confirmed, according to a source familiar with the proceedings who asked not to be identified owing to the sensitivity of the matter.

Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, is facing charges in more than a dozen cases, with a cumulative potential sentence of more than 150 years in prison.

She had already been sentenced to a total of six years in prison for other crimes, in what her supporters, some Western governments, and human rights organisations have called a sham trial.

On Thursday, a second bribery allegation was filed against Suu Kyi, accusing her of accepting a $550,000 contribution from a businessman, according to the official broadcaster.

Meanwhile, Suu Kyi is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 14 for the start of an election fraud trial after being accused of rigging the 2020 election in order to gain a second term in office.

Suu Kyi has previously stated that she is innocent of all charges. Her attorneys have been forbidden from discussing her cases.

A junta spokesman did not respond to a request for comment after the junta ousted Suu Kyi’s government in a coup in February. Suu Kyi would be given due process by an independent court, according to the military authorities.
