Gambia’s Justice Minister Abubacarr Tambadou has been honoured with an  award for “seeking justice for the persecuted Rohingya people of Burma”. 

The United States Council of Muslim Organisations bestowed its highest award to Mr. Tambadou last Friday. 

A letter from the organisation dated March 6, 2020, said the award is in recognition of Mr Tambadou’s ‘courageous’ pursuit of justice for the ‘long-persecuted’ Rohingya.

“It is with heartfelt salutations of peace and blessings that I greet and welcome you this evening on behalf of the United States Council of Muslim Organisations to receive our Highest Award of Honour in recognition for your courageous pursuit of justice to save the long-persecuted Rohingya minority of Burma from the ongoing acts of a brutal genocide and ethnic atrocities by the Myanmar government, army and chauvinist Buddhist paramilitary forces,” the organisation’s secretary general Oussama Jammal said.

“Your historic actions at The Hague brought Myanmar’s civiliang leader state counselor Aung Sung Suu Kyi to the International Court of Justice, the United Nations’ hisghest court, to account for her country’s systematic and brutal mass killings, arson and rape against its defenceless, helpless Rohingya victims. 

“There, she would not even utter the name, ‘Rohingya’, not once in a brazen and utter defiance of their legitimacy as a people and their very humanity. Yet your cogent, spirited and skilled presentation at the bar of the high court exposed this once-globally-lauded Nobel Peace Prize laureate called ‘The Lady’, as a monger of bloodshed and perpetrator of horrific brutality against the innocent Rohingya. 

“You brought her down from her lofty perch of feigned nonviolence in the eyes of the entire world, from peace icon to pariah, from high honor to fallen disgrace.

“And lest there be any doubt of the utter thoroughness of your success at The Hague against Myanmar and the complete undoing of the formerly celebrated personage Aung Sang Suu Kyi as a symbol of peace, Mr Tambadou, let me say, just yesterday the City of London Corporation revoked the honour of ‘Freedom of the City’ it had granted Suu Kyi in 2017.

“Amnesty International stripped Suu Kyi of its highest and prestigious Ambassador of Conscience Award, given in 2009.

“The US Holocaust Memorial Museum rescinded its first and highest human rights award awarded to Suu Kyi in 2012.

“Oxford University banished Suu Kyi’s portrait from its world of renown for her abetting of the Burmese genocide against the Rohingya. And the city of Oxford has nullified Suu Kyi’s Freedom of Oxford Award for her ‘inaction’ to save the helpless Rohingya.

“Your divestment and dismantling of Aung Sang Suu Kyi of every and any semblance of honour in the name of human rights and all vestiges of association with peace in the mind and judgment of the world has been – importantly and deservedly so – utterly total and profoundly complete; and for this we say thank you.”
