YANGON, Myanmar, June 11 (UPI) -- Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's lawyers will ask the Supreme Court to reinstate both her witnesses at her trial, her party said.
Only one witness has been allowed by the prosecution at her trial, which is expected to last another two weeks, CNN reported.
Suu Kyi, who has already spent 13 of the past 19 years under house arrest, is on trial in the military junta-ruled country, formerly called Burma, on charges of violating her confinement.
A pending Supreme Court petition will prevent the trial court from making its ruling, Suu Kyi's spokesman was quoted as saying.
The 64-year-old democracy activist is accused of offering temporary shelter to American John William Yettaw, who swam to her lakeside home May 3, CNN said. Suu Kyi has said she doesn't know Yettaw and denied any wrongdoing.
Critics have said the trial is only an excuse to further extend her confinement.
Closing arguments at the trial are set for Friday, and if convicted, Suu Kyi could receive a sentence of up to five years in prison, the report said.
