(Reuters) – A court in military-ruled Myanmar on Friday found deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi guilty of electoral fraud and sentenced her to three years in jail with hard labour, a source familiar with the proceedings said.

The source could not be identified as they were not authorised to speak to media. Suu Kyi has been detained since a coup in February 2021 and has already been convicted of several offences, including corruption and incitement.
