She has already been charged with importing walkie talkies

Myanmar police have filed a second charge against former leader Aung San Suu Kyi, after the military deposed her and seized power in a coup on February 1, her lawyer said on Tuesday.

She has already been charged with importing walkie talkies, but lawyer Khin Maung Zaw told local media she was facing a second charge of violating the country's Natural Disaster Law.

He said Suu Kyi had met with a judge on a videocall due to Covid-19 regulations, but lawyers could not attend because they had not been granted power of attorney.

Asked about her health, Khin Maung Zaw said: "No news is good news. We haven't heard or received bad news."

The date of the next court hearing will be March 1, he added.
