Special envoy for Burma or advocate for Burmese Regime
Burma Democratic Concerns (BDC) has determined that it is time for Ibrahim Gambari to vacate his post as United Nations Envoy to Burma. His continual failure to stem the tide of genocide has yielded catastrophic results in human suffering and death to the citizens of Burma. His efforts to bring democracy to Burma were counterproductive at best.
Collusion between Gambari and the Military Junta was all too apparent by Burma Democratic Concerns extinguishing impartiality and credibility of the envoy. Knowing that on February 12, 2009 Gambari and Japan sided with the Military Junta and endorsed the pending 2010 General Election only verified our suspicions. Gambari said that the world would react positively and encouraging the Myanmar government to hold a general election in 2010 would receive accolades from the international community.
Myo Thein, Director of Burma Democratic Concerns in the United Kingdom, ascertained, “We have been expressing our doubts over his (Gambari) impartiality and now the image is much clearer that he is merely a special advocate for the Burmese Junta”
Than Shwe and his military regime have continually ignored the election results of 1990 and incarcerated the nominee, Aung San Suu Kyi, as well as members of her political party. With the introduction of UN Envoy Gambari into the matrix of this dire state of affair the military junta operates with impunity and total disregard for human rights. The democratic voice of the people of Burma was completely ignored. Clearly Gambari has chosen to court the military junta at the expense of vast majority of the population of a nation. The people of Burma have spoken in the only legal election held since the junta laid siege on the population. Gambari has become an accessory to crimes against humanity and has enriched himself in the process.
There is no question what the demands of Aung San Suu Kyi and five CEC members of the National League for Democracy are fore they never changed. On February 2, 2009 they reaffirmed their position to;
• recognise 1990 election results accordingly
• review 2008 constitution
• allow to convene people’s assembly based on 1990 election result
• release all political prisoners including Aung San Suu Kyi
“They are the mandates given by our leaders and it is our duty to realise them ALL”, added Myo Thein.
Although the mandates were given by the Burmese Leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the opposition groups calling for doing rights,it is apparent that Gambari is not on the side of democracy. It is obvious to most Burmese people Gambari is only wasting valuable time with his counterproductive banter and lackluster performance.
Sources within Burma stated repeatedly that Gambari received a beautiful multi million dollar ruby as a form of bribery by Than Shwe. Another seedy tidbit from within Burma was a tale about Ibrahim Gambari and his romp in the sack with at least one young aspiring Burmese starlet. It would not surprise me one bit since a diplomat from his homeland of Nigeria gave Than Shwe’s representative a gift of $500,000 recently in cold hard cash.
Spending time with strumpets and receiving hush money seems to be all this so called envoy has accomplished over the years. He dishonored the United Nations as well as disrespect the good people of Burma who trusted him.Gambari pretends to be an angel of mercy offering false hope to a struggling repressed people when in reality his palm is greased with blood money.
Gambari purely needs to vacate his post as UN special envoy for Burma after all his trips was nothing more than opulent vacations and self serving profitable junkets filled with party girls and expensive wine.
