Burma's ousted former prime minister Khin Nyunt has reportedly been moved from house arrest to Rangoon's notorious Insein Prison.
Various news media quote prison officials as saying the former prime minister was transferred to the prison Tuesday.
He is expected to tried at a special tribunal in the prison compound on corruption and insubordination charges. It was not immediately known when the trial would begin.
Burma's military junta ousted the former intelligence chief last October in a move seen as solidifying the power of hardliners. Khin Nyunt had been characterized as more willing to move toward political liberalization.
