The military government in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, which seized
power after widespread accusations of voter fraud plagued the country’s recent
election, has now seized the bank accounts of George Soros’ Open Society
After taking control of the country earlier this year, the Myanmar military
government has also issued arrest warrants for 11 members of the Soros
organization in the country “on suspicion of giving financial support to the civil
disobedience movement against the military junta.”
The government will also take legal action against the Open Society
Foundations, saying they violated “restrictions on the activities of such
organizations” when they recently deposited $5 million into their Myanmar bank
accounts to help foment unrest against the new government.
The Soros group and Hillary Clinton had ties with recently ousted Myanmar State
Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi:
Clinton advised her to contest a parliamentary seat in the 2012 Burmese
elections, which Aung San Suu Kyi ultimately did, kickstarting the latter’s formal
political career in Myanmar.
Aung San Suu Kyi also received strong support from then-President Barack
Obama, who routinely advocated for her release from house arrest. Aung San
Suu Kyi was arrested repeatedly during the 1990s and 2000s for “subversive
acts”, following her involvement in riots against the Myanmar government.
Obama awarded her the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal in 2012, to boost her
profile at home and abroad. Ultimately, the Obama administration engineered
Aung San Suu Kyi’s rise to power in 2015, by placing sanctions on Myanmar and
insisting on only removing them if Aung San Suu Kyi was given a political role in
George Soros and his global NGO network, also strongly supported her
Myanmar recently banned Facebook and Twitter in the country after their
platforms used their algorithms to promote anti-military protests following the
military takeover, according to reports.
