Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi and detained President Win Myint appeared in good health during a court hearing but it was not clear if they were aware of the current situation in the country, their lawyer said on Thursday.

Min Min Soe, who is representing the deposed leaders, said she was not able to inform them about what was happening outside and is not allowed to meet her clients in person.

Their hearing was adjourned until April 12, Min Min Soe told reporters. Suu Kyi and Win Myint were arrested hours before the military’s Feb 1 coup on several charges their allies say are fabricated.
