Surakiart slams Richardson over attacks on Rakhine advisory board

Bill Richardson during an interview on Wednesday

The Reuters journalists, Myanmar nationals Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, face a possible 14 years in prison under the Official Secrets Act for allegedly possessing classified documents that they say were given to them by two policemen.

"And I think Aung San Suu Kyi has brought this upon herself, the constant disparagement of the global community, which I think can be helpful to her ..."

"In view of the difference of opinion that developed, the government decided that his continued participation on the (advisory) board would not be the best interest of all concerned", the statement said.Prior to that statement, a spokesman for Suu Kyi told CNN "we are very sorry about Mr Richardson's resignation".

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made another seemingly off-the-cuff remark when he told Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi that she shouldn't worry about Human rights activists as they are "just a noisy bunch".

"We already published a statement and also the advisory board published a statement". He said the commission would provide free and frank advice to the implementation committee and was confident in its ability to address the Rakhine issue.

Bangladesh government's Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commission said that 688,150 Rohingyas entered the country until January 25 since August 25 previous year after being displaced by the oppression of Myanmar Army and their associates.

The former diplomat affirmed that "the main reason I am resigning is that this advisory board is a whitewash", according to Al Jazeera.

The fact-finding mission of ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR), after visiting the Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar from January 21 to 24, found that there is still no friendly environment in Myanmar for the repatriation of Rohingyas.
