Professor Penny Green quoted in ASEAN Today article on Aung San Suu Kyi possibly allowing ethnic cleansing in Myanmar
10 October 2017
After months of silence, Aung San Suu Kyi’s first public speech addressing the Rohingya Crisis failed to explicitly address the reports of atrocities committed by the military – reports ASEAN Today. The word “Rohingya” was also only used in the context of naming the Rohingya militant group – the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), according to the article. Professor Penny Green said: “She chooses to use the word in relation to a terrorist group, that means that is the only identity that Rohingya will be attached to, from her perspective and she hopes from the international perspective.”
