Press Statement by Global Rohingya Center (GRC)

Global Rohingya Center (GRC) strongly condemns the assassination of U Ko Ni, the prominent Muslim legal advisor for Myanmar’s ruling National League for Democracy, and the taxi driver U Nay Win outside Yangon International airport, while U Ko Ni was waiting for taxi returning from a trip to Indonesia. His death was a shock for Muslims nation and for human rights activists in Myanmar and abroad.

U Ko Ni was known as brave, sincere and trustworthy by various religious and ethnic communities. He was widely respected Muslim figure in Myanmar and the only Muslim legal adviser to the National League for Democracy. He struggled for peace and democracy in Myanmar and for the right of Rohingya Muslim minority in Arakan State and for other communities across Myanmar. It is a loss for the country, not only for Muslims.

We express our deepest condolences to the family of U Ko Ni and Ko Nay Win, the taxi driver. Moreover, we ask the Muslim nations around the world to pray for him. May Allah accept him as Shaheed and grant him the paradise.

We in Global Rohingya Center urge the Myanmar government led by the Daw Aung San Suu Kyi for an urgent independent and transparent investigation on the assassination of U Ko Ni and the taxi driver and to investigate to bring the culprit and bring all those who are responsible and shared in this crime to the justice. In addition, we ask the Myanmar government to provide security in Arakan state where the Rohingya Muslim minority resides and all other states in Myanmar without any discrimination.
