Situation in Rakhine State being investigated: Aung San Suu Kyi

TRANS ASIA NEWS
Tokyo: - Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Friday investigations are underway into the situation in Rakhine State, where many members of a Muslim minority live and where human rights workers say conflict has led to civilian abuse by the military.
Suu Kyi, speaking on a visit to Tokyo, told a news conference the government had not tried to hide anything and was trying to get to the root of the matter, and would not accuse anyone until the investigation was complete. Any action would be taken in accordance with due legal process, she added.
Suu Kyi has not directly commented on calls from human rights experts urging the government to investigate allegations of abuse, including rapes and killings, or on statements from human rights monitors, although she has urged the military to act with restraint.
