Military Seizes George Soros Bank Accounts Announces Arrest Warrants After Coup.
WEEKS AGO… The military government in Myanmar has seized the bank accounts of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, after a coup provoked by widespread allegations of voter fraud.
The Myanmar military government has seized several bank accounts belonging to or affiliated with George Soros’ Open Society Foundations and issued arrest warrants for 11 members of the organization “on suspicion of giving financial support to the civil disobedience movement against the military junta.”
Officials said the Open Society Foundations broke “restrictions on such organizations’ activities” by depositing $5 million into its Myanmar bank accounts. It is also accused of stealing $1.4 million from its bank accounts.
The Union Solidarity and Development Party and other military-aligned factions have accused Soros of influencing Myanmar’s politics through financing civil society organizations.
There are several linkages between Soros, Hillary Clinton, and recently fired State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, as National File has reported:
Clinton recommended Aung San Suu Kyi to run for a parliamentary seat in the 2012 Burmese elections, which she did, launching her official political career in Burma.
Former President Barack Obama has often lobbied for Aung San Suu Kyi’s release from house detention. Aung San Suu Kyi was regularly detained in the 1990s and 2000s for “subversive acts” after participating in anti government protests.
She received the Congressional Gold Medal in 2012, which she called “one of the most touching days of my life”. To do this, the Obama administration imposed sanctions on Myanmar, promising to lift them only if Aung San Suu Kyi was allowed a political position in the nation.
