OSLO – The Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi does not need to fear that her Nobel prize for Peace should return. The rules do not allow that the prestigious award will be revoked, says the Norwegian nobel committee.
Suu Kyi is internationally under fire due to the violations of human rights in the Burmese state of Rakhine. The army with much violence occurred against the Rohingya minority. UN researchers say that Suu Kyi has failed “her position as actual head of government” and “moral authority” in the battle in order to protect the population.
Critics want Suu Kyi in her Nobel prize is taken, but that is not the case. “Aung San Suu Kyi won the Nobel Peace prize for her struggle for democracy and freedom to the year 1991”, stressed the secretary of the nobel committee. The politician was at that time peacefully against the military rulers in her country.
