Aung San Suu Kyi
Courts in the military-ruled country have already sentenced the deposed Myanmar leader to six years in prison, but her combined maximum sentences could see her jailed for decades.
Suu Kyi faces dozens of charges, and has been convicted of inciting dissent against the military and breaching COVID-19 rules.
Will the sentencing of Aung San Suu Kyi discourage dissent or further galvanise the 10-month-old resistance to Myanmar's coup? Two years under house arrest is the first of several sentences to come against a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who, at 76, may or may not ever walk free again. Before the putsch, critics called her too accommodating to the generals. Now silenced, is Suu Kyi reinstated in her status as the face of Myanmar's pro-democracy movement?
Governments and international organizations have said Myanmar's most prominent pro-democracy figure did not receive a fair trial, and accuse the ruling junta of sacking the rule of law in a bid to hold power.
