A spokesman for Su Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) accused the international community of colluding with the Rohingya Muslims to help them establish a sovereign land in Burma. The statement from the NLD came on a day after the UN independent fact-finding mission accused Myanmar military leaders of genocide against the Rohingya and Aung San Suu Kyi of contributing to the atrocities.
Dismissing the UN invstigators and their recent report, the spokesman Myo Nyunt, told the local media on Tuesday,
“Hundreds of thousands of people left, and we are fearful that there will be more returnees than people who left and that they will establish their own sovereign land with support from people versed in international law and with money,”
“We need to look into who was part of the investigating commission, whether or not they are objective, whether or not we can trust their evidence and what their evidence is – what you call ‘credibility’. We must look into all of this,” Myo Nyunt said.
Denying human rights abuses in Northern Arakan he said if there were any abuses, they must show us the evidence, and the government will take action. The evidence must be strong to rely on .The NLD spokesman’s remark is consistent with that of Suu Kyi’s personal spokesman Zaw Htay given to state media yesterday.
The Burmese government and its military force have been claiming the operations in northern Arakan State which displaced more than 700,000 Rohingya from the country as a legitimate response to attacks of Rohingya armed group on police posts but the rights groups have pointed out that the operations were pre- planned to intent a genocide against Rohingya in advance of the attacks.
