Case n° 02/2015: Myanmar
LEGAL NOTICE to USA
Dear Government of the United States of America (USA), as a result of the multiple awards given to Aung San Suu Kyi, de facto president of Myanmar, who is collaborating and perpetrating the extermination of the Rohingya People, the Buddhist Tribunal of Human Rights has the duty to point out that your government has granted the highest awards and distinctions to an international criminal that is responsible for Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes Against Humanity.
While it is important that the United States of America (USA) rewards and gives value to human rights, it is urgently requested to remove or annul the awards given to Aung San Suu Kyi, such as the USA Presidential Medal of Freedom and the USA Congressional Gold Medal, because otherwise it will be endorsing her genocidal behavior. This action of annulment of the prizes awarded to Aung San Suu Kyi has already been carried out by several cities in the United Kingdom (UK), so the United States of America (USA) is expected to follow the same Path.
The United States of America (USA) must understand that Aung San Suu Kyi is carrying out international crimes with total impunity, even going so far as to denounce that the genocide against the Rohingya People is a fake news created by the Western media. The United States of America (USA) should follow the example of Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, who has stated that Congress must reevaluate its relationship with the government of Aung San Suu Kyi, suspending commercial benefits and military ties with Myanmar as well as sanctioning leaders who planned and executed this campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya People. The United States of America (USA) must seek justice for the thousands of women and children who have been raped and murdered by the Myanmar government. The United States of America (USA) must denounce Aung San Suu Kyi as a false non-violence model. The United States of America (USA) must be a beacon of light and hope in the world, instead of endorsing and ethically supporting international criminals. The United States of America (USA) should support democracy and human rights with determination and sacrifice, instead of maintaining prizes and endorsements toward de facto presidents and genocidal tyrants. The United States of America (USA) should show courage to carry out the most correct and appropriate political criticism, especially when human rights are being despised by your own government.
With a spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Spiritual Judge of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee (IBEC) and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights (BTHR)
