By The Irrawaddy 12 October 2022

Myanmar’s military regime on Tuesday sentenced ousted Naypyitaw Mayor Dr. Myo Aung and his deputy U Ye Min Oo, of the deposed National League for Democracy government, to three more years in prison, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The regime had filed five counts of corruption against Dr. Myo Aung and two against U Ye Min Oo regarding the reclamation and sale of land plots in the administrative capital, Naypyitaw.

A special court inside Naypyitaw Prison has now handed down sentences of three years for each charge.

However, the sentences will be served concurrently, meaning the total sentence for each defendant is three years.

Tuesday’s verdict brought the cumulative sentence of Dr. Myo Aung to 23 years, and of U Ye Min Oo to 24 years.
