UN Human Rights Chief Hussein Thinks Myanmar Leader Should Resign

  • According to the outgoing UN human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein, the Myanmar's de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi should have resigned over the violent campaign that was carried last year by the military against the Rohingya Muslim minority. He termed it as deeply regrettable that Aung tried to excuse it. Hussein made his remarks after there emerged a report by the UN which states that military leaders of Myanmar should be prosecuted pertaining to the case of possible genocide.

    However, Myanmar has rejected the report, claiming it shows no tolerance against violation of human rights.
