London: Accusing Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi of being an "ally" of the military regime, an opposition party in Myanmar has asked the world investors not to engage in any investment with the present dispensation until a "genuine democratic government" is elected.
"Aung San Suu Kyi has made a U-turn and now she is an ally, collaborator and mouthpiece of the military regime. She has become a coalition partner of the military Junta. It is not correct to call her as a democracy opposition leader or icon or activist," Bo Aung Din, Chairman of the Parliamentary Democracy Party (PDP-Burma), said in a statement.
Bo Aung Din said the PDP, which is the direct descendant of the anti-Fascist and the People Freedom League founded in 1945 by General Aung San, the hero of Burma (now Myanmar), is currently applying a four-pronged strategy including political and military. He said under the tactic the party intended to charge the military Junta with indictment of crimes against humanity.
The party is also asked the "world investors not to engage in any investment with the military regime until military governance of Burma ends and a genuine democratic government is elected and runs the country under the Rule of Law."...more
