Summary

Analysts say army chief Min Aung Hlaing determined to sideline hugely popular leader and reshape politics free of her influence.After five years as the de facto leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi finds herself in a familiar place: under house arrest while facing trumped-up charges levelled by a military dictatorship, with her party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), on the verge of dissolution.On Monday, four months since the military seized power in a coup, the hugely popular politician will face trial in a Naypyidaw court on five charges including the illegal possession of walkie-talkies and breaking coronavirus restrictions while campaigning for elections. “We wonder what if she says something against the current revolution, things would go upside down,” Thinzar Shunlei Yi said.People hold placards depicting elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi during a rally to demand her release and protest against the military coup a week after the generals seized power [File: Stringer/Reuters]While some have argued that Aung San Suu Kyi backed the military on the Rohingya crisis due to a fear of a coup or a need to appeal to a nationalist voter base, others say her position simply reflected her genuine beliefs on the issue.“It’s not at all clear that her position on the Rohingya was driven by political considerations,” Horsey said.
