Aung San Suu Kyi detained by Myanmar army: Party spokesman | India NewsFebruary 1, 2021
YANGON: Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been detained by the military, her party spokesman said early Monday.
“We heard the President (Win Myint) and State Counsellor (Aung San Suu Kyi) have been detained in Naypyidaw… we heard they were taken by the military,” said Myo Nyunt, spokesman for the ruling National League for Democracy.
“With the situation we see happening now, we have to assume that the military is staging a coup,” he added.
Her detention comes after a week of ramped up rhetoric from the military, whose spokesman on Tuesday refused to rule out the possibility of a coup.
