UN’s Myanmar Rights Envoy Urges Aung San Suu Kyi to ‘Open Your Eyes’

An appeal by a United Nations envoy on human rights to Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi to stop ignoring the situation of persecuted Muslim refugees in Bangladesh and those still living in the Southeast Asian country drew swift rebukes from Myanmar officials on Wednesday.

Yanghee Lee, the special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar, told the Human Rights Council a day earlier that the situation in Myanmar was of extreme concern, and that the country had done nothing to eliminate systematic violence and the persecution of the stateless minority group.
