Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi faces an additional charge of violating the country's National Disaster Law, her lawyer Khin Maung Zaw said.
After the military takeover on February 1, Suu Kyi, 75, was detained and later charged with violating the import/export law for having walkie-talkies in her home.
Khin Maung Zaw said Suu Kyi met with a judge on a video call, due to COVID-19 regulations, on Tuesday afternoon, but lawyers could not attend because they had not been granted power of attorney.
The hearing, which was not open to the media, was originally scheduled for Wednesday.
The date of the next court hearing will be March 1, her lawyer said.
