Aung San Suu Kyi becomes first person whose citizenship has been cancelled after proven guilty in Rohingya Muslims genocide case.

This is the first time Canada ever revoke a person’s citizenship, The senate voted to cancel Aung San’s which was given in the year 2007.
United Nations had produced a report last month which declared that Myanmar’s military has killed thousands of Rohingya Muslims after burning down their villages followed by rapes and other crimes.
After that top generals were investigated and found guilty.
Aung San Suu Kyi had been awarded Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 after her fight for democracy in Myanmar.
“At that point, Aung was a champion who actually stood up when the whole world lost its hope. But right now, she is guilty of crimes she committed, and right now she is just a criminal.” said Omidvar.
Omidvar said she stopped everyone to Aid rohingya Muslims as well as stopped journalists or any military to help rohingya Muslims in any way, which is itself a big crime.
“We need to send a strong message from Canada to the world, that no matter how big your are, if you are involved in any kind of crime or genocide, you will not be welcomed in Cananda”.
