Four men were convicted Friday in the killing of a prominent adviser to Myanmar’s leadership who was shot in the head while holding his infant grandson at Yangon International Airport in 2017.
The killing of the adviser, U Ko Ni, is widely believed to have been a political assassination. But the supposed mastermind has not been found, and what role, if any, the country’s powerful military had in the killing was not revealed in the lengthy trial of the four suspects.
Mr. Ko Ni, 65, was a high-profile lawyer; a member of the governing party, the National League for Democracy; and a Muslim in a predominately Buddhist country riven by religious and ethnic violence. He was also a legal adviser to Myanmar’s leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
His killing has hindered the governing party’s efforts to change the political system, in which the military that once ran the country as a dictatorship still maintains vast authority.
Colleagues said that before his death, Mr. Ko Ni had advocated a new constitution that would cut the special powers the military reserved for itself in the current charter.
Mr. Ko Ni was also an author of a strategy that allowed Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi to bypass a restriction in the Constitution that prevented her from becoming president. Her allies created a new position, state counselor, through which she leads the country.
Witnesses said that before he opened fire, the gunman shouted, “You can’t act like that.”
On Friday, the accused gunman, U Kyi Lin, was sentenced to death for the killing of Mr. Ko Ni. He was also sentenced to 20 years in prison for the killing of a taxi driver who tried to stop him after the initial shooting. U Aung Win Zaw, who was accused of directing the killer, was convicted of murder and also given a death sentence.
The odds of the men being executed are quite low, however. Death sentences are typically commuted in Myanmar.
Also sentenced on Friday were U Zeyar Phyo, who got five years in prison for conspiring in the killing, and U Aung Win Tun, who was convicted of harboring one of the conspirators as a fugitive and given three years in prison.
Both Mr. Zeyar Phyo and Mr. Aung Win Zaw are former military officers.
Prosecutors have said that the attack was masterminded by U Aung Win Khaing, a former lieutenant colonel in Myanmar’s Army. He remains at large.
“Discussions of the motive in the killing are speculative,” U Nay La, a prosecutor, said in an interview with The Irrawaddy, an online news outlet. “We have not been able to establish a motive during the trial. Presumably we would be able to do so if Aung Win Khaing was arrested.”
Mr. Nay La added that he did not believe Mr. Ko Ni was killed solely because he had advocated a new constitution, but that that could have been a factor in his death.
Mr. Ko Ni was the son of a Muslim father from India and an ethnic Burmese and Buddhist mother. He was called one of the governing party’s brightest legal minds, which he combined with a political savvy that helped the party navigate the country’s sectarian divides.
He endorsed a decision by the National League for Democracy to not run any Muslim candidates in the 2015 election, when it won a landslide victory that brought Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi to power. The Parliament seated in 2016 was the first to have no Muslim members since the country’s independence in 1948.
Tens of thousands of mourners gathered for Mr. Ko Ni’s funeral in Yangon, but Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi did not attend.B:
