Default Myanmar ambassador to UK 'locked out' of London embassy

He had been there
since 2014.


[Myanmar's ambassador in London says
he has been locked out of his embassy.

Kyaw Zwar Minn said staff were asked to
leave the building by Myanmar's
military attaché and he was told he
was no longer the country's representative.

"I have been locked out," he told Reuters news agency.

Myanmar's military seized power
in a coup on 1 February, sparking weeks
of protests and escalating violence.
Kyaw Zwar Minn has called for the
release of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi.]

it happens all the time. Usually people get these roles to return a favour by the administration, so when a new administration comes in, they get the boot

Yes very true
it is just sad,
any from Burma (Now Myanmar)
that might want to use the UK Embassy
to find out about a lost relative,
would not visit it now.
