TOKYO: Deputy representative of the Burmese Rohingya Association in Japan, created by Rohingya refugees from Myanmar's Islamic ethnic minority, Zo Ming Tut, held a press conference at the Japan Foreign Correspondents' Club in Tokyo on January 15.

"Don't believe the lies of the Myanmar Army or the state adviser Aung San Suu Kyi," he accused the Suu Kyi administration of denying Rohingya rights, and persecuting them.

Over the persecution of the Rohingya, the Myanmar government has been sued by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, The Netherlands, and Suu Kyi has appeared in oral arguments last December.

On the other hand, he complained that the Japanese government had abstained in the resolution of the UN General Assembly resolution accusing of Rohingya persecution, saying that was to satisfy the Myanmar government.
