    Geldof returns Dublin honour in protest over Aung San Suu Kyi

    Bob Geldof has said he will return his Freedom of the City of Dublin in protest against the Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who also holds the award.

    Mr Geldof said "her association with our city shames us all".

    Ms Suu Kyi has faced heavy criticism over her failure to address allegations of ethnic cleansing against Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims.

    More than half a million Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh following recent violence.

    Mr Geldof, the musician and founder of Live Aid, said in a statement: "Her association with our city shames us all and we should have no truck with it, even by default.

    We honoured her, now she appalls and shames us."

    He said he would hand back the award at City Hall in the Irish capital on Monday morning.




    It is good to see someone like Geldorf doing this as what is happening to the Rohingya people, in her name, is nothing short of barbaric.

    Any other opinions ?

    While not wishing to give overt support for the attempted ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya Muslim people, I am not sure what Aung San Suu Kyi could have done about it.
