LONDON (AFP) – Binawi kay Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi ang honorific freedom ng Oxford, ang British city kung saan siya nag-aral at pinalaki ang kanyang mga anak, dahil sa kawalan ng aksiyon sa krisis ng mga Rohingya.

“When Aung San Suu Kyi was given the Freedom of the City in 1997 it was because she reflected Oxford’s values of tolerance and internationalism,” saad sa pahayag ng city council na inilabas nitong Lunes ng gabi.

“Today we have taken the unprecedented step of stripping her of the city’s highest honor because of her inaction in the face of the oppression of the minority Rohingya population,” dagdag sa release, inilathala matapos ang unanimous vote.

“Our reputation is tarnished by honoring those who turn a blind eye to violence.”
