    Myanmar military leaders must face genocide charges, says UN.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 27 Aug 2018, 12:21 pm

    A UN report has said top military figures in Myanmar must be investigated for genocide in Rakhine state and crimes against humanity in other areas.

    The report, based on hundreds of interviews, is the strongest condemnation from the UN so far of violence against the Rohingya.

    The army's tactics are "consistently and grossly disproportionate to actual security threats", it says.

    It names six senior military figures it believes should go on trial.

    It is also fiercely critical of Myanmar's de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, for failing to intervene to stop the violence.

    The report calls for the case to be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

    OK, while it is true that most of the Rohingya refugees are Muslim, this is not a good enough reason to commit genocide against them.

    Opinions please.

    Yes, Aung San Suu Kyi had everything going for her until she refused to do anything about the genocide being perpetrated against the Myanmar people.

    Serves her right if her international standing crashes out of the game.

    And yet she is not to be stripped of her Nobel Peace Prize over these actions, reports The Guardian HERE

    She was the one in power and yet she did nothing.

    I say, take her Nobel Peace Prize back to show her the error of her ways.

    I think the drive to do this would have to come from where the Nobel prizes are decided upon.

    This is:

    As stipulated in the will of the Swedish-born inventor and international industrialist Alfred Nobel, which was opened after his death in 1896, the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine and Literature are awarded in Stockholm, Sweden, while the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway.
