Yangon: Myanmar's ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi was hit with a fresh criminal charge on Monday, her lawyer said.

"She has been charged in six cases altogether - five charges in Naypyidaw and one in Yangon," Min Min Soe told AFP, saying the latest charge was under the country's natural disaster management law.
