UK Foreign Secretary condemns politically motivated charges against Aung San Suu Kyi

The UK has condemned the charges against Aung San Suu Kyi in a court hearing in Myanmar today and calls for her immediate release.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

The charges against Aung San Suu Kyi are politically motivated, and the latest example of the Myanmar military undermining democratically elected politicians. Aung San Suu Kyi and all other elected politicians arbitrarily held must be released immediately.

The UK and likeminded nations will not ignore these violations. We will ensure those responsible are held to account.
