Myanmar's ousted former leader Aung San Suu Kyi and deposed President Win Myint will face five additional charges of corruption, each carrying a maximum of 15 years in prison, a source familiar with the proceedings said on Friday.

The cases centre on hiring a helicopter while in office, said the source, who declined to be identified because they were not authorised to speak to media, reports Reuters.
