2016 Suppressed News

Myanmar (see previous): Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia has asked for help to stop what he calls the genocide of the Rohingya in Myanmar. He mocks Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi for doing nothing, a point which is also currently being made by The New York Times. Myanmar's response is to ban workers from travelling to Malaysia. The minority of Rohingya has been relocated to camps, fled the country, or faces ongoing persecution with their houses and villages burned by the Myanmar military, the women gang raped. In the 2015 election Rohingya were refused their right to vote yet the elections were welcomed by Europe and the U.S.. A recent article in the Asia & The Pacific Policy Society Forum notes 160,000 persons in displacement camps since the violence of 2012 and accepts the Human Rights Watch assessment of 1200 structures in Rohngya villages destroyed in the past month; generally the Rohingya are considered to be undergoing a genocide. Aung San Suu Kyi's stature as a Nobelist is providing cover for her inaction, the government's crime, as well as the policies of all concerned with increasing investment in Myanmar. A genocide warning continues.
