(Reuters) – The head lawyer representing Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Friday he had been issued a gag order by authorities in the military-ruled country.
Khin Maung Zaw, who has been the only source of public information on Suu Kyi’s court appearances and multiple legal cases, said in a Facebook post he had been barred from speaking to media, diplomats, international organisations and foreign governments.
