Notably, Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders of her National League for Democracy (NLD) were detained by the Myanmar military during a raid in the wee hours on Monday (February 1).

The Myanmar military soon after detaining NLD leaders, took over control of the country.

The coup comes following tensions between the civilian Government and the military after the general elections in the Country in November last year.

Meanwhile, Myanmar police has charged arrested leader Aung San Suu Kyi with possession of illegally imported walkie-talkies, which could result in a two-year prison sentence.

On the other hand, residents in Myanmar’s commercial capital – Yangon, have been protesting against the recent military takeover that ousted Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who is often referred to as ‘The Lady’.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Security Council has shown a rare unity to criticise the military takeover in Myanmar.

The UNSC members have come together to express “deep concern” over the military takeover in Myanmar, calling for the immediate release of the country’s elected leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, and President Win Myint.

The UNSC has called for “immediate release of all those detained”, and stressed on “the need to uphold democratic institutions and processes, refrain from violence, and fully respect human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law”.

The 15-member United Nations Security Council has encouraged “pursuance of dialogue and reconciliation in accordance with the will and interests of the people of Myanmar.”
