🔴Thursday May 6th 2021 🔵2021年5月6日星期四 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 🚫🇲🇲🚫Guilty until proven otherwise: Aung San Suu Kyi 有罪推定原則:翁山蘇姬 Ms Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader until the army seized power in February, is scheduled to appear in court today. She has been charged with six offences. The hearing, which is likely to be virtual, concerns the most serious allegation: that she breached the official secrets act, which carries a 14-year prison sentence. The junta argues, without evidence, that Ms Suu Kyi was elected fraudulently, and promises to re-do the poll once it has restored order. But the generals have unleashed chaos. The army’s brutal crackdown has largely quelled protests in cities, but has pushed some Burmese to exchange placards for weapons. Bands of armed civilians have attacked and killed members of the security forces. In recent days at least a dozen bombs have exploded in Myanmar’s cities. Meanwhile, the army must also contend with ethnic-minority rebel groups in the country’s fringes, where fighting has displaced tens of thousands. The bloodletting is far from over. 今年二月發生政變以前的緬甸實質領導人翁山蘇姬 (Aung San Suu Kyi) 被以六項罪名起訴,並預計在今天出庭。今天的聆訊很可能採線上進行,並且將談論 (檢方對她) 最為嚴厲的指控,即其違反最高可處 14年有期徒刑的國家機密法 (Official Secrets Act)。(緬甸) 軍政府在毫無證據的情況下辯稱翁山蘇姬是以詐欺的方式而勝選,並矢言當該國秩序恢復穩定後,會重新舉辦選舉。無奈這些軍頭們卻持續引發緬甸的混亂。軍隊的暴力鎮壓雖大致平息了城市間的示威活動,但也迫使一些手持抗議標語的緬甸人轉拿武器。數個武裝民兵部隊已攻擊並造成 (緬甸軍方) 維安部隊的傷亡。近日已有至少數十起爆炸案在緬甸各地發生。與此同時,緬甸軍方還必須對抗邊境上之少數民族的反抗勢力,而雙方間的衝突已使得成千上萬的民眾流離失所。流血衝突的結束尚無盡頭。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅De facto (adj.): 實質上的 (形) ✅Seize power (v.): 奪權 (動) ✅Be charged with (adj.): 被…指控 (形) ✅Official (adj.): 官方的、正式的 (形) ✅Evidence (n.): 證據、證明 (名) ✅Fraudulently (adv.): 詐欺地 (副) ✅Restore order (v.): 恢復秩序 (動) ✅Chaos (n.): 混亂 (名) ✅Brutal (adj.): 野蠻的、殘忍的 (形) ✅Placard (n.): 標語牌、告示牌 (名) ✅Dozen (n.): 一打、十二個 (名) ✅Ethnic-minority (n.): 少數民族、少數族裔 (名) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
