Did Myanmar’s military deepfake a minister’s corruption confession? (KrAsia)

Phyo Min Thein, the former chief minister of the Yangon region, appeared on a television network operated by the Myanmar military. He said he offered bribes to Aung San Suu Kyi, the former State Counsellor of Myanmar. But viewers who know the minister said his voice didn’t sound right, and the video quality was craggy, fueling speculation that the clip was generated using deepfake tools.
