Reuters journalists imprisoned in Burma represented by Amal Clooney
Celebre public defender of humanitarian law Amal Clooney joins the law enforcement group that represents two Reuters correspondents detained in Burma who are charged with holding classified federal paperwork, her bureau said on Thursday. During a military repression that began in August, the media had worked on a Reuters inquiry into the murder of 10 Muslim Rohingya men in the West Burmese state of Rakhine, which sent almost 700,000 refugees to Bangladesh.
"Awa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo will be tried just for reporting the message. I' ve checked the case record and it is clear that the two reporters are not guilty and should be immediately released," Amal Clooney cited in a declaration published by her brief.
Since they were detained on December 12, Walt Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have been in detention. They were almost immediately apprehended after being curled up in a Yangon north Yangon restaurants by two police who hadn' t previously hit them, after being asked to see the officer for supper.
The former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who was tasked with trying to solve the Rohingya crises, is discussing what needs to be done. The Labour MEP Rushanara Ali, leader of the all-party group on Burma, talks about the Rohingya's predicament. Mohamed Nazmul Quaunine, Bangladesh's High Commissioner for the United Kingdom, talks about the Rohingya's predicament.
Now, the UN refugees chief says that this is one of the most serious human crises he has ever seen. Rohingya Moslems escaping from Myanmar have become a disgrace to the world's consciences - and the situation is getting more and more serious by the minute. The film depicts the lives of tens of thousands of people who are still on the frantic road to security.
Ms Mona Khalil, a senior United Nations attorney with many years of UN expertise in the field of UN assistance for conflict and insecurity, and former UN Chief of Staff for Emergencies and Missions, Stephen O'Brien, speak on the suffering of the Rohingya tribe and President Trump's speech. Circumstances for the hundred-thousand Rohingya Muslims who flee to Bangladesh are deteriorating every day: and there continues to be criticisms of Myanmar's female Myanmar leadership Aung San Suu Kyi from her co-Nobel Prize laureates.
