YANGON, July 16 (Eleven Media Group/ANN): The two cases against Aung San Suu Kyi under the anti-corruption law were submitted to the Supreme Court of the Union on July 13 for the dismissal of the case, which is said to have taken US$500,000 from the owner of the company, U Maung Weik, according to the report.

Regarding the above case, the prosecution's witnesses, including the plaintiff, are still being examined.

In regard to the cases that were dismissed, they will have to wait for the list of cases from the Supreme Court of the Union, and on the day of the hearing, the judge will be examined whether the dismissal will be accepted or not.

The information team of State Administration Council released on March 17, 2021 showed the testimony of U Maung Weik and in the video, U Maung Weik said he became close to Daw Khin Khin Oo, who was working at Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's home, in 2017.

In May 2018, with the help of Daw Khin Khin Oo, he started visiting Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and he put 100,000 US dollars into a black paper gift bag for the Daw Khin Kyi Foundation and gave it to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi himself in front of U Shout San and U Hla Myo.

According to U Maung Weik's statement in the video file, he personally gave Daw Aung San Suu Kyi US$150,000 in a black paper gift bag in 2019. In February 2020, another 50,000 US dollars was given and in April, he gave another US$250,000 and no one was around when it was given.

Former counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, former Nay Pyi Taw Mayor Dr. Myo Aung, former Nay Pyi Taw Deputy Mayor U Ye Min Oo and former Minister of Social Affairs for Yangon Region U Naing Ngan Lin had filed to the Supreme Court for dismissal of the corruption charges, but they were rejected.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to 11 years in prison for the six cases that were already examined, and on June 22, she was transferred to Nay Pyi Taw Prison. - Eleven Media Group/ANN
