EU condemns Myanmar’s ‘politically motivated’ Suu Kyi sentence

The European Union on Wednesday slammed a five-year jail sentence given by a Myanmar junta court to deposed civilian leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi at a “politically motivated” trial.

“It represents another step towards the dismantling of the rule of law and a further blatant violation of human rights in Myanmar and yet another major setback for democracy in Myanmar since the military coup on 1 February 2021,” an EU spokesperson said in a statement.
