  Xinhua News Agency, Yangon, September 29 (Reporter Zhang Dongqiang) A special court located in Nay Pyi Taw Prison in Myanmar found on the 29th that former State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi violated the State Secrets Act and sentenced her to three years in prison.

Aung San Suu Kyi now faces a cumulative increase to 23 years in prison.

  Court officials confirmed the news and said Aung San Suu Kyi’s Australian economic adviser Sean Turner, Myanmar’s former ministers of planning and finance, Sue Win and Kyaw Win, and former deputy ministers of planning and finance, Saion, were 4 people. On the same day, they were both sentenced to three years in prison for violating the State Secrets Act.

  Aung San Suu Kyi's lawyer said that Aung San Suu Kyi, Sue Win, Kyaw Win and Seon will appeal, and it is not known whether Tenier will appeal.
