Myanmar Leader Suu Kyi To Be Stripped Of Freedom Of Paris Award

The city of Paris will strip Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi of her honorary freedom of the Paris award over her failure to speak out against a crackdown on Rohingya Muslims.
She has already been stripped of her honorary Canadian citizenship and her Amnesty International’s “Ambassador of Conscience Award”.

She would be the first person to lose the freedom of Paris award. More than 700,000 Rohingya fled violence in the Buddhist-majority country last year, mostly to neighboring Bangladesh.
