Win Htet Oo started this petition to International Olympic Committee and

To the World’s People,

My name is Win Htet Oo and I am a Myanmar representative swimmer who has represented Myanmar twice in the 2013 and 2019 Southeast Asian Games. I have created a petition aimed at securing support from people around the world to help compel the International Olympic Committee to renounce and expel the Myanmar Olympic Committee from the Olympic Movement.

The reasons are as follows.

Since February 1st, Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing has assumed absolute power under his State Administration Council (SAC), that now controls every government ministry. Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing stands accused of orchestrating military campaigns that have been roundly condemned as constituting Crimes Against Humanity towards ethnic people in Myanmar including the 2017 Genocide of the Rohingya people. The SAC-Ministry of Health and Sport, which oversees the function of the Myanmar Olympic Committee has refused to condemn the routine and deliberate targeting of doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other medical staff by the military. Thus far, medical professionals have been subject to harassment, intimidation, imprisonment, torture, and death by the SAC regime. The repression is not surprising as medical professionals were among the first to instate Myanmar’s civil disobedience movement. The SAC Myanmar Ministry of Health and Sport proudly displays the Olympic Rings in its logo as it quietly supports the campaign of terror. The Myanmar Olympic Committee has refused to condemn attacks on Myanmar athletes and sports professionals. Athletes have been subject to bomb attacks, and shootings as the MOC continues to tolerate violence against dissident sportspersons. 

I ask Thomas Bach OLY and the International Olympic Committee how they can continue to tolerate the MOC’s breach of the Olympic Charter and the Fundamental Principles of Olympism. What more egregious crime is necessary to show the MOC's absolute failure to protect the cause of sport in Myanmar?

This petition is for everyone around the world who cares about keeping the Olympic Games free of the miasma of genocide. We cannot invite the MOC to the highest level of human sporting achievement when the MOC has ingratiated itself with Genocidaires. 

Win Htet Oo. Myanmar Swimmer.
