U.S. Holocaust Museum revokes Aung San Suu Kyi's Nobel Peace Prize | World Press Releases
United States Holocaust Institute has retracted a humanitarian prize for Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's civil chief, for failing to use her "moral authority" to stop a violent armed action. On Wednesday, the Ethiopian government released the Elie Weasel Prize, which was awarded to Aung San Suu Kyi in 2012.
Officers quoted their unwillingness to denounce or stop the massive culling of the Muslim Rohingya people in Myanmar. She had made settlements with South African Nelson Mandela after 15 years under domestic detention for resisting the country's armed regime. Barack Obama then loosened the penalties, provided funding and was the first US acting US official to pay a trip to Myanmar.
However, Aung San Suu Kyi's unsustainable global renown has fallen because of the Rohingya massacre and she has been criticized as an apologist for the clean-up. Not even spoke the term Rohingya in the open. The Holocaust Memorial Board's Holocaust Memorial Secretary, Sara Bloomfield, explains the reasons in an open cover note to the Myanmar Mission in Washington, which was posted on the museum's website.
It has" followed closely" the Burma military's expedition against the Rohingya and Aung San Suu Kyi, Bloomfield went on to make "numerous visits" to Myanmar and Bangladesh to obtain first-hand proof. It has also released finds containing "growing proof of genocide". Burma's army, joined with Buddhist civilian gunmen, has been killing tens of thousand Rohingya in the state of Rakhine since last August.
Myanmar's denial of ethnical cleansings has been described by the US as "absurd" and has urged the UNSC to urge Aung San Suu Kyi to "acknowledge these terrible deeds that are taking place in her country". Reuters reporters Wa Lone, 31, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 27, who investigate the death of 10 Rohingya men and their funeral in a collective tomb, were imprisoned 14 years ago.
Myanmar officials are accusing them of keeping state secrets. No. Losing the prize - called after Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust resurvivor and one of the museum's creators - comes because other Aung San Suu Kyi fans are becoming more and more dejected. It is unlikely that the Holocaust is the last monument or institute to be called into question by its complex heritage.
One of Mahatma Gandhi's statues in front of the British government's Washington consulate is adorned with a plate of scarlet stone with the personalities he has inspired, including Aung San Suu Kyi.
