Aung San Suu Kyi was hit with another charge after the military deposed her and seized power in a coup on February 1, her lawyer said on Tuesday.

Suu Kyi’s lawyer Khin Maung Zaw told local media Suu Kyi was facing a second charge of violating the country’s Natural Disaster Law.

Meanwhile, she has already been charged with importing walkie-talkies.

He said that Suu Kyi had met with a judge on a video call due to COVID-19 regulations, but lawyers could not attend because they had not been granted power of attorney.

Asked about her health, Khin Maung Zaw said, “No news is good news. We haven’t heard or received bad news.”

The date of the next court hearing will be March 1, he added.
