Inmates allowed out of prison for skills upgrading under amended laws

Inmates who are based outside of prison while serving part of their sentences will not be allowed to drink alcohol, consume or possess any controlled drug. These are in addition to current conditions such as electronic monitoring, mandatory reporting and curfew hours. At the same time, they will not be identified as inmates when attending courses or training along with the public. Eligible inmates can now undergo skills training and education in the community at the tail end of their sentences. Another amendment to the Prisons Act is the redacting or withholding of correspondences that might affect the security of prisons, or safety of inmates.

Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi sentenced to four more years in prison

Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to four more years in prison. A court has convicted the ousted leader for the illegal possession and import of walkie-talkies, as well as breaching COVID-19 rules. Ms Suu Kyi has been detained since the military coup in February 2021. The Myanmar army has barred the media from attending the trials. Lawyers have also been given a gag order. Ms Suu Kyi has yet to face some of her most serious verdicts, including corruption and breaching the country’s Official Secrets Act. She faces a dozen charges and if guilty on all counts, she could be jailed for life.

Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi sentenced to four more years in prison | DW News

Aung San Suu Kyi was convicted of three criminal charges. She is on trial for nearly a dozen cases that carry maximum sentences of more than 100 years in prison.

A Myanmar court on Monday sentenced ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi to four more years in prison.The Nobel Peace Prize laureate has faced an onslaught of legal charges since being detained on February 1 last year after her government was overthrown in an early morning coup by the army. The 76-year-old was given a two-year sentence for breaching the export-import law by importing and owning walkie-talkies, and one year for having a set of signal jammers. Both sentences will run concurrently. These charges stem from when her house was raided on the day of the coup. The court also handed down a further two-year sentence for breaching the natural disaster management law related to coronavirus rules while campaigning. Suu Kyi was convicted last month on two other charges — incitement and breaching COVID-19 restrictions — for which she was given four years in jail. The head of the country’s military junta Min Aung Hlaing later halved that sentence and said she could serve her term under house arrest in the capital Naypyidaw. All the charges against her together carry a maximum sentence of more than 100 years. Her supporters say the charges against her are baseless and contrived to end her political career while legitimizing the military takeover.
