Case 02/2015: Myanmar
ACT ON ROHINGYA PEOPLE
Dear government of Malaysia,
On December 16, 2016, we are communicating with you in order to perform an International Endorsement to the declaration of Malaysia and the Prime Minister Najib Razak about the ethnic cleansing that is happening in Myanmar against the Rohingya people. This International Endorsement is in accordance with the Judgment of Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against Humanity that the government of Myanmar received by our Tribunal on May 2015, time in which a Notification to the governments of Bangladesh, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia was also performed in order to consider the Rohingya People as refugees and not as illegal immigrants, since they were fleeing from terrible violations of human rights.
Because apartheid, mass persecution and murder of the Rohingya People are crimes that violate international law, Myanmar should not allude to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of another State. Human rights violations are a global issue to all humankind, so the Malaysian government has the right and duty to report international crimes occurring in Myanmar, even if the UN fails to carry out this ethical mission. In this way, it is requested that the government of Malaysia brings those responsible for this ethnic cleansing that happens in Myanmar to justice, while, at the same time, it is requested that the asylum rights of these thousands of refugees whose are fleeing from hatred and death will be respected.
In conclusion, Aung San Suu Kyi, the Minister of Myanmar, who has won the Nobel Peace Prize, should begin once and for all to uphold the human rights of the Rohingya People, since she has never done it before. Otherwise, Aung San Suu Kyi should return her Nobel Peace Prize and assume that she has broken the mission of bringing Kindness and Harmony to the world.
Always with spirit of Reconciliation (Maitri),
President of Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
