Myanmar leader Suu Kyi ‘should have resigned’, says Zeid

August 29, 2018 Off By Web Desk

The outgoing UN human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein says Myanmar’s de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi should have resigned over the military’s violent campaign against the Rohingya Muslim minority last year.

He told BBC that Aung San Suu Kyi’S attempts to excuse it were deeply regrettable.

His comments came after a UN report said that Myanmar’s military leaders should be prosecuted for possible genocide.

Myanmar rejected the plea and said it had no tolerance for human rights violations.
