Canada revokes the honorary citizenship of Aung San Suu Kyi



HONGKONG – Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the civilian leader of Myanmar, was dismissed on Tuesday for her inaction over military violence against Rohingya Muslims.

Senators unanimously decided to revoke their citizenship and declare the treatment of Rohingya by Myanmar's government as genocide. The same actions were unanimously approved by the lower house last week.

These voices were partially fueled by a United Nations investigation into six leading generals in Myanmar in August for genocide and crimes against humanity.

More than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled across the border into Bangladesh since August 201

7, when Myanmar's majority Buddhist security forces in the Rakhine state launched a violent campaign involving executions, gang rape and the burning of hundreds of villages. About 10,000 people were killed, according to the United Nations.
