Maung Maung Soe (general)

Major General Maung Maung Soe is a general in the military of Myanmar. He is in charge of the armed forces in the western part of Myanmar. The area he commands includes the Rakhine State where a crackdown on Rohingya has been taking place. The U.S. government blacklisted the general in December 2017 citing "credible evidence" that he commanded forces involved in violence, sexual assaults, extrajudicial killings and the burning of villages of the Rohingya minority.[1] The Government of Myanmar released a statement that said the accusations are based on unreliable sources.[2] He is also the subject of sanctions imposed by the government of Canada under the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act.[3]
