One of Britain’s largest trade unions has suspended an award given to Aung San Suu Kyi when she was a political prisoner, as international criticism mounts over Myanmar refugee crisis, according to a report.

Unison, the country’s second largest trade union, came up with the move as a number of British institutions say they are reviewing or removing honours bestowed on Aung San Suu Kyi during her campaign for democracy under Myanmar’s oppressive military junta, the report said.
