IF2A CONDEMNS THE ASSASINATION OF RESPECTED HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER U KO NI

International Flotilla 2 Arakan (IF2A) strongly condemns the brutal assassination of respected human rights lawyer U Ko Ni. U Ko Ni was mercilessly shot close-range and killed outside Yangon Airport Myanmar on Sunday 29th January 2017 upon returning from a work tour in Indonesia, while carrying his young grandchild.

We mourn deeply over the loss of a much-loved and respected nobleman of Myanmar. Our thoughts and prayers are with the deceased almarhum U Ko Ni, his family and team during this sorrowful period. His passing is a tremendous loss to human rights defenders. We hope true justice shall prevail over this sad tragedy.
