According to previous reports, a spokesman for the National League for Democracy of Myanmar said on February 1 local time that political leaders such as Myanmar’s senior state and foreign minister Daw Aung San Suu Kyi were “held by the military”.
In addition to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar President Wen Min and several other leaders were also “taken away” that morning.
I want to say to people, don’t react rashly, I want them to follow the law.” The spokesman added that he could also be detained himself.
According to Reuters, the Myanmar military said that power had been transferred to Min Aung Lai, the commander-in-chief of the National Defense Force.
