Myanmar’s military rulers have accused the ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi of illegally accepting $600,000 (£430,000) and gold.

The allegation is the strongest yet levelled by the military since it overthrew Ms Suu Kyi and the country’s democratic leadership on 1 February.

No evidence was provided for the charge.

Brigadier General Zaw Min Tun also accused President Win Myint and several cabinet ministers of corruption.

Ms Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), won a landslide victory in the polls last year, but the military now claims the election was fraudulent.

Independent international observers have disputed the military’s claim – saying no irregularities were observed.

Ms Suu Kyi is being held in an undisclosed location and faces several charges, including causing “fear and alarm” and illegally importing walkie-talkies.

The charge levelled on Thursday is the most serious so far. The value of the gold the military alleges she illegally accepted is roughly £450,000.
