Suu Kyi under fire for taking money from cronies of the former regime – The Times

CHIANG MAI — The Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is raising political funds from some of her country’s most notorious crony businessmen, in the latest in a series of controversies surrounding the former political prisoner. Ms Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), has admitted receiving hundreds of thousands of pounds from companies owned by the reviled bosses, who amassed fortunes through their close relationships with the brutal junta that controlled Burma for almost 50 years.
