With breaching house arrest:

Myanmar charges Suu Kyi

MYANMAR: Myanmar authorities Thursday charged opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi with breaching the conditions of her house arrest and her trial will start on May 18, her lawyer said.

Aung San Suu Kyi and her two maids faced the charges when they appeared at a court in the notorious Insein Prison, hours after police escorted them from the pro-democracy icon's lakeside home.

The charges come a week after the arrest of US national John Yettaw, who was detained by police for swimming across a lake and staying at her off-limits residence for two days before he was caught. "The authorities have charged Aung San Suu Kyi and her two maids under Section 22" of the Law Safeguarding the State from the Dangers of Subversive Elements, under which she is detained, lawyer Hla Myo Myint said. Yettaw also appeared in court and was charged with breaching the security law and with immigration violations, Hla Myo Myint added.

He said that the trials of Aung San Suu Kyi and her maids would begin on May 18 at Insein Prison in Yangon, but did not give a date for Yettaw. YangoN, Thursday, AFP
