Myanmar court accepts Suu Kyi appeal

(AP) – 3 hours ago

YANGON, Myanmar — Lawyers for detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi say a Myanmar court has accepted their request to appeal the conviction that extended her house arrest by 18 months.

Lawyer Nyan Win says the Divisional Court in Yangon has scheduled the appeal for Sept. 18.

A lower court ruled on Aug. 11 that Suu Kyi was guilty of violating the terms of her earlier detention after an uninvited American visitor stayed at her home. She was sentenced to serve an additional 18 months of house arrest.

The case drew international condemnation and renewed calls for Suu Kyi’s freedom.

Suu Kyi has spent 14 of the last 20 years in detention.
