MYANMAR'S OUSTED PRESIDENT FACES 2 NEW CHARGES: LAWYER
Myanmar's ousted President Win Myint is facing two new charges, his lawyer Khin Maung Zaw said on Wednesday, including a breach of the constitution that is punishable by up to three years on prison.
Win Myint was arrested on February 1 along with Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi just hours before the military seized power in a coup. Win Myint is also facing charges over violating protocols to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Lawyer Khin Maung Zaw said Win Myint's trial date is not known.
