dpa/GNA – Myanmar’s detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been charged under the country’s Import and Export Law, a senior National League for Democracy official says on Facebook.

Ousted president Win Myint, meanwhile, has been charged under the country’s Natural Disaster Management Law, Kyi Toe wrote.

Human rights advocates said the charges were unfounded.

“This is an absurd move by the junta to try to legitimize their illegal power grab from Myanmar’s democratically-elected government,” said Charles Santiago, a Malaysian lawmaker and chair of ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights.

“This does nothing except rub further salt into the wounds of the millions who voted for the NLD in November,” he added.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
