Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for United Nations Security Council Resolution on Burma 30 June 2011 Burma

Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for United Nations Security Council to adopt the resolution on Burma calling for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi party, National League for Democracy (NLD), its right to exist as the legal political party as well as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters safety. Addition, Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) seriously condemns U Thein Sein regimes threat to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and National League for Democracy (NLD). Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) seriously calls for the totalitarian U Thein Sein regime to respect Daw Aung San Suu Kyi party, National League for Democracy (NLD), its rights to exist as the legal political party. U Thein Sein an authoritarian regime accuses NLD to stop such acts that can harm peace and stability and the rule of law as well as the unity among the people including monks and service personnel, NLD activities were potentially disruptive to the parliamentary system and threatened national stability and the party was dissolved on 14 September 2010 for refusing to take part in 2010 sham election but continued to run its headquarters and branch offices around the country. The NLD won a landslide victory in a 1990 general election but election results were ignored. U Myo Thein, the Director of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that We call for the international community to support Daw Aung San Suu Kyi party, National League for Democracy (NLD), its right to exist as the official political party as well as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters safety since U Thein Sein un-democratic regime lay blame on Daw Aung San Suu Kyi planned tour of the country could generate riots. We must take action immediately in order to prevent unnecessary sad tragic ends. Especially, United Nations Security Council (UNSC) must intervene in such an important time. Please remember that the assassination of the prince Franz Ferdinand led to the outbreak of World War I and yet again World War II broke out since The League of the Nations failed to take timely action on the aggressors. U Khin Maung Win, the Director of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that The world knows the truth that National league for Democracy (NLD) is the official election winning party. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is the elected legitimate leader of Burma in accordance with the 1990 elections which were held by the military generals pledged to hand over the power to election winning party after the 1990 election. It is the truth. So it is also the truth that without honouring 1990 elections results and holding the sham elections on 2010 were illegitimate. So it also is the truth that U Thein Sein regime is illegitimate and ruling Burma without having legitimacy of the people Burma is also illegitimate. Accordingly, whatever U Thein Sein regime is saying on Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and NLD are illegal and therefore void. On 30 May 2003, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her motorcade while travelling on campaign trip was ambushed by a government sponsored culprits near Kyee village in Depaeyin, upper Burma. During an organised assassinated attack Daw Aung San Suu Kyi narrowly escaped but hundreds of her supporters were brutally beaten to death which now became known as the Depaeyin massacre. Since her release on 13 November 2010 a week after the sham election Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has not left Rangoon but now Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is planning her first trip outside the Rangoon in July 2011. Military dominated U

Thein Sins regime which assumed power after the sham election said that if Daw Aung San Suu Kyi makes trips to countryside could create riots. U Tint Swe Thiha, the Patron of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that We earnestly seeks international community support calling for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters safety since it is not enough for the regime to just releasing Daw Aung San Suu Kyi but it also must guarantee that it will not once again attack or arrest at their convenience. Our concerns for the safety of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters are escalating more and more after regimes mouthpiece newspapers openly threatening Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and National League for Democracy (NLD). Daw Khin Aye Aye Mar, the Patron of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said We believe such intimidations should be condemned by United Nations Security Council. Addition, United Nations Security Council must call for the Burmese regime to put in place the necessary security measures to guarantee Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters safety. The safety of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters are very vulnerable since they are always facing the risk of being arrest, attack or/and anarchic assaults by the regime at any time. United Nations Security Council must adopt the resolution, without delay, on Burma calling for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi party, National League for Democracy (NLD), its right to exist as the legal political party as well as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters safety and ultimately calling for national reconciliation in Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) believes establishing UN Secretary General Representative Liaison Office in Burma is essential so as to act as the facilitator between U Thein Sein led USDP regime and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi led legitimate leaders in order to break the ice on the deadlocks taking place genuine dialogue leading towards national reconciliation in Burma.
