Action must be taken following Rohingya crisis
The final report on ethnic cleansing has finally been released.
This report should raise a lot of concern from the International community, particularly from countries in the western world.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has asked a prominent Liberal Bob Rae, also a former Ontario premier, to look into great details about the Rohingya crisis.
No Myanmar (formerly Burma) politician including Nobel laureate and honorary Canadian Aung San Suu Kyi is above a potential investigation by the International Criminal Court of possible war crimes stressed Ray.
Rae offered this stern warning when he released his final report on the troubles engulfing Myanmar and immediate neighbor Bangladesh.
“Whoever is found responsible, whether in the civilian government or the military government, for what has happened should be responsible. I don’t exclude anybody from that” Rae said in his detailed report.
Canada should also consider granting refuge and resettlement to Myanmar’s persecuted ethnic Rohingya 700,000 Muslims who fled to Bangladesh to escape a brutal campaign by Myanmar’s military, Rae said.
The 39 page report makes interesting reading and should be of concern to all peace loving people around the world.
Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto political leader has been widely criticized for not speaking out against the atrocities committed against the Rohingya.
Rae, the veteran politician, made two trips to Myanmar to get first hand reports of what was going on.
Canada must take a lead role with like minded countries in a United Nations genocide investigation.
Many countries are relying on Canada to take an active action about the ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.
Let us hope Prime Minister Trudeau does not brush aside this very important report
Let us also hope this was not a publicity stunt to increase Trudeau’s popularity for the next federal elections.
