Nay Pyi Taw: Myanmar’s military rulers brought about the most serious charges so far against the ousted democracy leader Aung San and accused her of illegally accepting $600,000 and 11kg of gold.

However, the army did not provide any evidence to support their accusations, and an MP from Ms Suu Kyi’s party denied the allegation, a BBC reports said.
The accusations against Me Suu Kyi was made by a former chief minister of Yangon, Phyo Mien Thein, who said he had made the payments to her, junta spokesman Brig said. He further said that the anti-committee was investigating these accusations.
Gen Zaw Min Tun also accused President Win Myint and several cabinet ministers of corruption. (UNI)
