Myanmar's deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi is to serve four more years in prison after being found guilty of illegally importing and possessing walkie-talkies and violating coronavirus restrictions.

Ms Suu Kyi was convicted last month on two other charges and given a four-year prison sentence, which was then halved by the head of the military-installed government.

The cases are among about a dozen brought against the 76-year-old since the army seized power last February, ousting her elected government.

Ms Suu Kyi's supporters say the charges against her are contrived to legitimise the military's actions and prevent her from returning to politics.
