Aung San Suu Kyi rejects UN inquiry into crimes against Rohingya
Myanmar leader says resolution for the investigation is ‘not in keeping with what is happening on the ground’

Aung San Suu Kyi has rejected a decision by the UN’s rights council to investigate allegations of crimes by Myanmar’s security forces against minority Rohingya Muslims.
The UN body agreed in March to dispatch a fact-finding mission to the south Asian Asian country over claims of murder, rape and torture in Rakhine state.
“We do not agree with it,” Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader, told a press conference on Tuesday with EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini during a visit to Brussels, when asked about the probe.
“We have disassociated ourselves from the resolution because we do not think that the resolution is in keeping with what is actually happening on the ground.”
The Nobel laureate said that the country would be “happy to accept” recommendations that were “in keeping with the real needs of the region … But those recommendations which will divide further the two communities in Rakhine we will not accept, because it will not help to resolve the problems that are arising all the time”.
Aung San Suu Kyi has seen her international star as a rights defender wane over failing to speak out about the treatment of the Rohingya or to condemn the crackdown.
Rights groups say hundreds of the stateless group were killed in a months-long army crackdown following deadly attacks on Myanmar border police posts. Almost 75,000 Rohingya have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh where they have related grisly accounts of army abuse.
But Aung San Suu Kyi rejected suggestions that she or Myanmar authorities were deliberately overlooking atrocities.
“I am not sure quite what you mean by saying that we have not been concerned at all with regards to the allegations of atrocities that have taken place in the Rakhine,” she said. “We have been investigating them and have been taking action.”
UN investigators say the crackdown likely amounts to crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing.

If you attack Myanmar border police posts, do you expect a retaliation? Yes,and that should be made clear to every Rohingya Muslims.
Rohingya Muslims should all be sent back to Bangladesh where they originally came from.They will fit in nicely there with millions of other Muslim brothers and sisters rather than live with the kaffirs in Myanmar.
Rohingya are just another branch of Islam’s invasion into non-Muslim nations. As always the lies and deceptions abound. Sure, Burma struggles. Decades of military control and oppression are not easy to undo. But I’d rather live there than Saudi Arabia.
In addition, the Orwellian body, the UN (disunited and certainly not representative of all nations) has been taken over by Islam. They will, and do, protect their own. Those who advocate for a UN-led world government should take a look at what they will get. Or getting. Islam is attempting to bring about exactly that, a world government, with the active support of the UN.
