Nepid (August 02,2023) : Myanmar's ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been pardoned by the military junta, but she will remain under house arrest. The pardon was announced on Tuesday, but the junta did not say why it had been granted.

 Suu Kyi was arrested in February 2021, after the military seized power in a coup. She has been charged with a number of offenses, including violating the country's natural disaster law and inciting public unrest. If convicted, she could face up to 100 years in prison.

 The pardon is a significant development, but it does not mean that Suu Kyi is free. She will remain under house arrest until the end of her trials, which could take years. The pardon has been met with mixed reactions. Some people have welcomed it as a sign of progress, while others have criticized it as a token gesture
