Rohingya: Myanmar

Question for Home Office

UIN 122655, tabled on 10 February 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment she has made of the security risk to Tun Khin, President of the Burmese Rohingya Organisation (BROUK), and British citizen and Rohingya activist, by the presence of the Myanmar military attaché in the UK in the context of a leaked memo from that military on 14 January 2022 naming BROUK in connection with a universal jurisdiction case brought by BROUK against that military in Argentina.

As a matter or long-standing policy, the Government does not comment on the detail of security or intelligence matters.

The Government takes potential risks to communities in the UK, including those from Myanmar, very seriously. I would encourage anyone who feels that they are under threat to contact the police in the first instance.
