Four Men Forced To Kill Top Aide For Myanmar's Leader



Four men were sentenced Friday in the killing of a prominent adviser to Myanmar's leadership shot in the head while holding his infant son at Yangon International Airport in 2017.

The killing of the counselor, u Ko Ni , is widely believed to have been a political murder. But the supposed mastermind has not been found, and what role, if any, the country's powerful military had in the murder, was not revealed in the long attempt at the four suspects.

Herr. Ko Ni, 65, was a high profile lawyer; member of the government party, the national league of democracy and a Muslim in a predominantly Buddhist country torn by religious and ethnic violence. He was also a legal advisor to Myanmar's leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.

His killing has prevented the government party's efforts to change the political system where the military, which once ran the country as a dictatorship, still retains great authority.

However, the odds of the men being executed are quite low. Deaths are typically commuted in Myanmar.

Also convicted Friday was U Zeyar Phyo, who got five years in prison to conspire in the murder, and U Aung Win Tun, who was convicted of having one of the conspirators as a refugee and given three years in prison.
