Trial of Aung San Suu Kyi to continue Monday

YANGON, Myanmar — A diplomat says the trial of Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi will continue Monday with the prosecutor’s closing argument.

The widely criticized proceedings were expected to wrap up Friday with the defense lawyers and the prosecutors presenting final arguments. But the diplomat says only the defense presented their argument Friday.

The diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because of diplomatic protocol.

The 64-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate is charged with violating the terms of her house arrest by harboring an American man who swam secretly to her lakeside home and stayed for two days. Suu Kyi faces up to five years in prison if found guilty.
