Displeasure about EU Prize Aung San Suu Kyi

World September 12, 2017 13:06

strasbourg - The European Parliament is dissatisfied with the European award for freedom of thought and expression awarded by Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi from Myanmar in 1990. The current government leader of former Burma released this week on allegations that the Asian army is guilty of ethnic cleansing of the Islamic population of Rohingya.

UN Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein spoke on Monday of a 'classic example of ethnic cleansing.' Suu Kyi called that 'fake news'.

Sajjad Karim, a British Muslim of the Conservative Party, wants her to be honored. Guy Verhofstadt, leader of the Liberal Group, had also asked for action. President Antonio Tajani said it was difficult to recover the Sakharov Prize, but promised to further deepen the matter.

Aung San Suu Kyi, a 72-year-old, had been under house arrest for the long-standing authorities and could not receive the prize until 2013.
