Burmese snap up tours to The Hague court to give Aung San Suu Kyi support


Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi

YANGON, Nov 30 (AFP) — Ardent fans of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi are snapping up spots on US$2,000 tours to The Hague, in a display of moral support as Myanmar faces charges of genocide over the Rohingya crisis at the UN's top court in December.

Supporter rallies, billboards and outpourings of praise online followed the shock announcement by the country's civilian leader last week that she would personally represent Myanmar at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
