Suu Kyi treads fine line on Rohingya tragedy

Suu Kyi treads fine line on Rohingya tragedy

Marzuki Darusman decried stepped-up violence in Myanmar over the last month that has caused more than 400,000 people to flee, and asked the United Nations -backed Human Rights Council for a six-month extension until next September for his team's first written report. She said "there will be no further defense engagement or military training" with Myanmar until the crisis ends.

As of Monday, more than 410,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh after the Myanmar security forces launched "security operations" targeting Rohingya villages following insurgent attacks on police posts and an army base on August 25, according to United Nations estimates.

Violence erupted on August 25 when a group of Rohingya militants torched police checkpoints in Rakhine.

So when Suu Kyi says she's just a politician and "not Mother Theresa", she is not balancing competing interests and deterring aggressors, but settling into a life of grisly realpolitik.

"Subsequent military and police operations led to tens of thousands of Muslims fleeing across the border to Bangladesh", the report said after attacks on border police posts in October 2016.

Suu Kyi in her speech said, "50% of the villages of Muslims are intact".

Ms Suu Kyi did not mention the Rohingya by name in yesterday's speech, but did address their potential return.

The morning of August 27 started as any other for Anika Dhar, 18, a resident of Fakira Bazar village in the Maungdaw area of Myanmar's troubled Rakhine state.

Rohingya activists strongly dispute this, saying many families have lived in Myanmar for generations.

"We don't have proper documents, it's very hard to prove", said Mohammed Faruque, a long-term refugee, who has lived in the Kutupalong camp since 1991, when his father brought him as a one-year-old boy.

Nyan Win, a central executive committee of the ruling National League for Democracy party, said as there are thousands of refugees in Bangladesh they need documents of their refugee status from Myanmar to accept them. She invited the diplomats with visit villages that weren't affected so they could learn along with the government "why are they not at each other's throats in these particular areas".

"While it was positive to hear Aung San Suu Kyi condemn human rights violations in Rakhine state, she is still silent about the role of the security forces in this". They say she also risks alienating Myanmar's Buddhist majority, including some who gathered to watch the speech in Yangon, the largest city, carrying placards that read, in English, "We stand with Mother Suu".

"There is overwhelming evidence that security forces are engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing", Gomez said.

Addressing the council on its new fact-finding mission on Myanmar two months after becoming its chairman, Darusman cited two main points from Suu Kyi's speech earlier Tuesday: The "categorical readiness" of Myanmar's government to accept returnees once procedures are worked out, and its readiness to be "globally scrutinized by the global community". "To the people, she is defending the country's image".

"What I understand is that verification of refugee status as per the 1993 principle is the effort of solving the problem politically between Myanmar and Bangladesh governments".
