George Graham, Director of Humanitarian Advocacy at Save the Children, said:
“Aung San Suu Kyi’s remarks fly in the face of all the evidence gathered by the UN, and the testimony our own teams have heard from countless survivors.
“Rohingya families have faced patterns of unimaginable horrors in a campaign of violence. Children and their parents have been systematically killed, maimed and raped.
“Despite the claims that these violations are under investigation and will be dealt with domestically, the government of Myanmar has failed at every turn to punish those responsible.
“The world can no longer accept Myanmar’s tactics of delay and diversion. Justice delayed is justice denied.”
