YANGON - Aung San Suu Kyi, head of Myanmar's National League for Democracy (NLD), has been moved to a prison in Nay Pyi Taw, the capital city of Myanmar, the State Administration Council's (SAC) spokesperson Zaw Min Tun confirmed on Thursday.

Before Suu Kyi was transferred to the prison in accordance with criminal laws, SAC Chairman Senior General Min Aung Hlaing sent a representative to talk with her, the spokesman told Xinhua.

On Feb 1 last year, Suu Kyi and some senior NLD officials were detained by the military. A Myanmar court has sentenced her to 11 years in prison so far for several offenses including corruption.
