Aung San Suu Kyi’s trial adjourned till June 12

Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – The special court in Rangoon’s Insein prison on Friday adjourned the trial of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi till June 12.

The court session, which began at 10 a.m. (local time) on Friday, did not conduct any hearing but fixed the next date of the trial to June 12. Meanwhile the Rangoon divisional court (higher Court) has accepted the request by defence lawyers to reinstate defence witnesses who were disqualified by the Insein prison court.

The divisional court will be holding a hearing of lawyers of both sides at 3 p.m. on Friday, and will decide whether to reinstate the witnesses.

Lawyers of Aung San Suu Kyi had produced four witnesses but the Insein court (lower district court) rejected three of the witnesses and allowed only one - Kyi Win from Irrawaddy division.

The three other witnesses, who were barred by the court, were veteran journalists Win Tin, NLD’s vice-chairman Tin Oo, who is also currently under house arrest, and lawyer Khin Moe Moe.
