In the predawn hours of 1 February 2021, Myanmar military detained Aung San Suu Kyi, her puppet President Win Myint and scores of other NLD MPs and officials in a move that looks very much like a textbook coup.
This dialogue will shed light on how Myanmar’s Big Lie – democratic transition / “fragile democracy – has gained currency worldwide over the last 10 years since Myanmar military rolled out its constitutional government lead by ex-general Thein Sein in 2010.
