Malaysia - Revoke military awards given to Min Aung Hlaing

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has said that what Min Aung Hlaing’s military is doing to the Rohingya is genocide, so why does Min Aung Hlaing still have prestigious awards from Malaysia?

Sign the petition to the government of Malaysia calling on them to revoke the awards they have given to Min Aung Hlaing.

Text of petition:

Dear Prime Minister

Senior General Min Aung Hlaing is the person responsible for military offensives against Rohingya civilians in 2016 and 2017. During these offensives thousands of people were killed, including children, thousands of women were raped, and almost 800,000 Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh.

You have described these attacks as genocide. However, according to Min Aung Hlaing’s website, he still retains two of Malaysia’s highest military honours, Star of the Commander of Valour, and The Most Gallant Order of Military Service.

We the undersigned signatories call upon you to revoke these honours. Min Aung Hlaing is a criminal who is violating international law. He should not be honoured by Malaysia or any other country.
