Myanmar’s junta has filed a new corruption charge against ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the latest in a series of allegations to have been leveled against her by the military rulers since she was toppled in a coup in February.

Suu Kyi, who now faces seven charges, was accused of accepting illegal payments of 600,000 dollars in cash as well as a large quantity of gold and misusing her authority in renting land and a building while she was in office, the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar newspaper reported on Thursday (June 10).
