Amnesty International revokes Ambassador of Conscience Award given to Aung San Suu Kyi

Amnesty International revoked the Ambassador of Conscience Award given to  Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi.  She received the honour in 2009, when she was living under house arrest. The rights group said it was profoundly dismayed at her failure to speak out for the Rohingya minority. The organisation, which once feted her as a beacon for democracy, announced its decision on the eighth anniversary of Ms Suu Kyi’s release from house arrest.
