Case n° 18/2016: State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na)
LEGAL NOTICE to the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)
On May 2, 2018, this Legal Notice is made due to the fact that Nobel Peace Prize winners have publicly accused Myanmar of committing genocide against the Rohingya People, since Aung San Suu Kyi, de facto president of Myanmar, has led an ethnic cleansing and forced expulsion of 700 thousand people by means of sexual abuse and systematic and widespread murder of girls, women and unarmed men, very often by decapitating or burning them alive. In 2018 Tawakkol Karman, Mairead Maguire and Shirin Ebadi have requested that those responsible for these international crimes of genocide against innocents be brought before the International Criminal Court.
On the other hand, in 2017 and 2018, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Yanghee Lee, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, stated that the crimes committed by Myanmar against the Rohingya People would constitute acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide, calling on the international community to conduct investigations and trials before international courts.
Precisely, not allowing impunity to exist is what the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has been doing in 2015 and 2016, when sentencing to the de facto leaders of Myanmar, Thein Sein, Aung San Suu Kyi and Min Aung Hlaing, for the crimes of genocide, ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity, high crimes against peace, violation of international human rights law and violation of Buddhist law; and also sentencing the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee and its de facto leader Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa for the crimes against humanity and peace, complicity with genocide and ethnic cleansing, violation of the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples, violation of the freedom of expression, violation of the rights of women and children, complicity with discrimination, oppression and illegal detention against the Buddhist Sangha, and violation of the Buddhist Legal Code. For having blatantly ignored this terrible situation, the IBC Secretary General, Lama Lobzang, was sentenced as Responsible for Violation of Buddhist Law.
Consequently, it is confirmed the fact that when keeping the genocidal criminal Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa as its Spiritual Patron, the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) is not only validating Violations of Buddhist Law, but it is also being an accomplice to crimes against humanity, since it provides shelter or covers up an international criminal to revalidate him ethically and spiritually, which provides impunity for crimes committed in the past and also allows to continue carrying out crimes in the future. In case of not resolving this scandalous situation, by not expelling Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa in the next 5 days, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights will initiate legal actions against the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC).
Finally, as the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso has been previously informed, the expulsion of Sogyal Rinpoche, who is a member of the Supreme Dhamma Council of the IBC, is ordered within the next 5 days, since he has been found Responsible for having committed Torture and Slavery, Inhumane treatment against women, all of which constitutes a Violation of Buddhist Law and Crimes against humanity.
It is expected that the IBC will comply with the Buddhist Law, ceasing to do evil, beginning to do good and spiritually purifying itself.
With spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Spiritual Judge of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee (IBEC) & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights (BTHR)
