Aung San Suu Kyi sentencing: Foreign Secretary statement, December 2021


Press release

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss comments on the sentencing of Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said:

The sentencing of Aung San Suu Kyi is another appalling attempt by Myanmar’s military regime to stifle opposition and suppress freedom and democracy.

The United Kingdom calls on the regime to release political prisoners, engage in dialogue and allow a return to democracy. The arbitrary detention of elected politicians only risks further unrest.
