In meeting with the UN envoy on the side of the ASEAN summit, Myanmar junta chief Sen Gen Min Aung Hlaing defended the coup by citing "massive fraud" in the November election that no one else has seen and for which he has never shown any proof. #TheBigLie
As Myanmar's junta leader, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, takes his first trip abroad since the coup -- to the ASEAN summit -- he should be arrested for overseeing mass atrocities, not welcomed.
The Global Center for the Responsibility to Protect @GCR2P calls for Myanmar junta leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing to be arrested for crimes against humanity if he leaves Myanmar to attend the ASEAN summit this week.
ASEAN will let Myanmar junta chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing attend a summit next week. The big question: will it legitimize him or treat him like the mass-atrocity criminal that he is and insist he stop -- and return power to the elected government.
A Myanmar state-run newspaper claimed that military forces were taking control of public universities and hospitals "because members of the public had requested" it. Odd how only Senior Gen Min Aung Hlaing seems to have heard them.
“Russia is a true friend,” says Myanmar coup leader Min Aung Hlaing. Meaning Russia is a friend of the Myanmar military as it shoots protesters. Not that Russia is a friend of the Myanmar people, since both the Kremlin and the junta fear democracy.
"Hackers attacked a state news media website, defacing it with triple ultimatums: 'We want democracy! Reject military coup! Justice for Myanmar!'” The face of coup leader Senior Gen Min Aung Hlaing "has been defaced countless times on posters and online."
Myanmar's coup leader Min Aung Hlaing was so out of touch with the people of his country that, Trumpian style, he seemed to believe that the only way his party could have lost the recent election was through fraud. In fact, his party was trounced.
You can tell Myanmar coup leader Min Aung Hlaing is bewildered when in his major speech he doesn't even mention the coup, the detention of the country's elected leaders, the mass demonstrations in protest, or the international condemnations and sanctions.
Myanmar's coup leader Sen. Gen. Min Aung Hlaing "is not a listener -- he talks and others listen." "This big man management style is conducive to ignorance and arrogance...the isolation that comes from being at the top," says former Australian ambassador.
Myanmar's military leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing was already wanted for directed crimes against humanity against Rohingya Muslims. Now he's also wanted for mounting a coup and overthrowing Myanmar's democracyc.
