Myanmar's deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other detained officials have been formally charged by the military junta, the state media reported Thursday morning local time.

The big picture: "The Anti-Corruption Commission has inspected corruption cases against ex-state counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. She was found guilty of committing corruption using her rank," the military said in a statement, per Bloomberg, which notes she could face up to 15 years in prison for the offense.

  • Suu Kyi has been detained since the military seized power in a Feb. 1 coup.
