The United States and the European Union have condemned Myanmar’s military junta for issuing a 33-year prison sentence for ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

“The final judgment of the Burmese military regime on State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi is an affront to justice and the rule of law,” said a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, using Myanmar’s former name and title of a veteran leader before its ouster in February 2021.

The European Union also condemned Suu Kyi’s imprisonment after “purely politically motivated” trials by the ruling military junta.

An EU spokesperson said: “These trials have been proceeded without respect for due process or the necessary judicial guarantees and are a clear attempt to exclude democratically elected leaders from political life.” He also criticized the sentencing of former President Win Myint, Suu Kyi’s co-defendant, to 12 years in prison.
