MILITARY COUP IN MYANMAR

The Myanmar army seized the administration on February 1, after the allegations of fraud in the November 8, 2020 elections and the rise of political tension in the country.

The army detained many officials and ruling party leaders, including the country’s de facto leader and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Çii, and declared a state of emergency (state of emergency) for a year.

The people of Myanmar started demonstrations on February 6 demanding a return to democracy. 570 demonstrators lost their lives in the armed intervention of the security forces.

While large-scale demonstrations continue in the country, high-ranking government officials in custody continue to be tried in a military court.
