Euro-Burma Office Apologizes for NLD Claims (March 26, 2013)

ေခြးမသား ဟန္ေညာင္ေ၀ … မင္းကုိေတာ့ ေတြ႕ရသခၤ်ဳိင္း ဓါးမဆုိင္းပဲ … Euro-Burma Office Apologizes for NLD Claims (March 26, 2013)

The Brussels-based Euro-Burma Office has issued a formal apology for reporting on its website last Friday that members of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in Meiktila were behind the violence that wracked the central Burmese city last week.

Harn Yawnghwe, the executive director of the Euro-Burma office, said that the claims were made by “usually reliable sources” and were posted verbatim without editing.

Harn Yawnghwe added that its purpose in posting the alert was to call for an end the violence between Muslims and Buddhists in Meikhtila, and “not to damage the reputation of the NLD.”

EBO is very concerned about recent violence in Burma – especially as there are concerns that it could turn into a Rwandan-like genocide.
