Amidst Myanmar’s Rohingya criticism, Noble Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi will be stripped of her honourary freedom of French Capital by Paris, over her failure to “express her concerns” to the Rohingya minorities – victim of crimes against their community by Myanmar’s military forces.
According to news reports, Mayor Anne Hidalgo has decided to revoke her because of the “multiple violations of human rights recorded in Myanmar and the violence and persecution by Myanmar’s security forces against the Rohingya minority”.
The move follows the same decisions by Oxford, Edinburg and Glasgow and due to of this move, it would Myanmar’s de facto leader will become the first person in order to lose the honoury freedom of French Capital- a purely true symbolic award.
Spokesperson said that in the mid-December, the city council will organize a meeting and then the move will be finalized.
Over 70,000 Rohingya’s has fled to India and Bangladesh to refuge there after facing lots of criticism, discrimination, crimes against them.
In fact, the UN rights team has noticed and founded many evidence related to the crimes – rape, torure, widespread murder and arson, done against Rohingyas. It also called up for top generals to investigate for genocide, crimes and war crimes against the humanity.
Mayor Hidalgo also said that last year she has wrote to Suu Kyi to “express her concern and call for respect for the rights of the Rohingya minority”, but however, no response was greeted from Suu Kyi.
Suu Kyi’s supports rebuke the statement saying that Suu Kyi has no power to guide the army.
Suu Kyi has been already stripped of her Amnesty International’s “Ambassador of Conscience Award” and of her honoury Canadian citizenship.
