Aung San Suu Kyi's reputation as a human rights icon has been severely tarnished after her response to the Rohingya crisis.
President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte told Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on Friday that she should not pay heed to the "noisy bunch" of rights activists, who have been criticising her for the way she has been handling the Rohingya crisis in her country.
Suu Kyi's government has been criticized for what the United Nations calls as "textbook ethnic cleansing" for its soldiers' brutal attacks on the Rohingya minority which started after Rohingya rebels attacked police outposts.
"Aung San Suu Kyi was with us. I pity her, because she seems to be caught in the middle being a Nobel prize victor for peace and there is the ruckus where she is heavily criticized", Duterte said.
"We were talking about our country, the interest of our country and I said "do not mind the human rights" (activists), they are just a noisy bunch actually", Duterte said.
About 700,000 Rohingya have been forced to flee their homes in Rakhine state in western Burma.
She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for standing up against the military-backed government.
Myanmar analyst U Khin Zaw Win said Richardson's words could deliver a "much-needed jolt for Aung San Suu Kyi and for the people around her who are not reporting the truth to her". Local and worldwide human rights groups however estimate the deaths at over 13,000.
"I still admire and like her, but I am sure that's not the case on her part", he said.
According to the president, the United Nations has not been able to prevent any war or massacre from happening, his latest tirade against the world body which has criticized his ferocious campaign against illegal drugs.
He said the United Nations was inutile for failing to stop killings and massacres. "I could not be more clearer when I'm saying those things because if not, then we lose our country", he added.
The report also claimed that Duterte's war on drugs had resulted in an "epidemic of police shootings-often portrayed as "shootouts" but repeatedly shown to be summary executions-[and] had left more than 12,000 people killed".
Human rights groups, however, said this figure is understated if the deaths allegedly carried out by so-called "vigilantes" will be taken into account.
Cayetano was reacting to the global watchdog's 2018 World Report wherein it stated that President Rodrigo Duterte "has plunged the Philippines into its worst human rights crisis since the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos in the 1970s and 1980s".
While the President has ignored global criticism to his campaign, he has responded to public outcry to the deaths of teenagers at the hands of police by putting the Philippine National Police to a supporting role to the much smaller Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.
