The informal briefing by Special Envoy of the Secretary-General on Myanmar to the United Nations General Assembly was held on 26 February 2021 at UN Headquarters in New York.
During the briefing, Ambassador/ Permanent Representative U Kyaw Moe Tun gave his statement in which he expressed that he was representing the NLD-led civilian government elected by the people of Myanmar and delivered the message of the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH). He added to support the people who are resisting the Tatmadaw and to render assistance to those people by the International Community, to release detained leaders and to end the military coup.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Myanmar instructed all Myanmar Missions abroad not to accept, reply and make any comments on communication such as e-mail and correspondence from the CRPH, which is committing the destructive acts.
Ambassador/ Permanent Representative U Kyaw Moe Tun did not comply with the instruction from the Ministry and committed the act of high treason. He also acted as a representative and followed the instructions of the CRPH, which is an unlawful organization, as well as abused his assigned duty and mandate. Therefore, he was dismissed as a civil servant on the morning of 27 February 2021 in accordance with the Civil Services Personnel Law, rules and regulations.
