Myanmar Regime Seizes Bank Accounts of George Soros' Open Society Foundation

Before her overthrow, Myanmar State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi held talks with George Soros, founder and chairman of the Open Society Foundation, in New York in September 2016.

Blowback against billionaire George Soros' operations are developing at key hot spots around the globe, perhaps nowhere as aggressively as in Myanmar.

The military regime that has just gained control of Myanmar via a coup has seized control of the bank accounts in the country of Soros’ Open Society Foundation and announced that it will take legal action against the foundation, which it accused of violating restrictions placed on such organizations.

On Monday, military-controlled MRTV announced that the military had issued arrest warrants for 11 staff members of Open Society Myanmar Myanmar, including its head and deputy head, on suspicion of giving financial support to the civil disobedience movement against the military junta, reports The Irrawaddy.

The military has already detained the finance officer of OSF Myanmar, Phyu Pa Pa Thaw. She has been held since last Friday and interrogated about "cash flow into the CDM ( civil disobedience movement) movement".

The regime said the opening of the OSF Myanmar office came about after George Soros met now-ousted Myanmar State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi four times between 2014 and 2017. It said OSF deputy chair Alexander Soros met Daw Aung San Suu Kyi six times from 2017 to 2020.

Soros is known for messing with political outcomes around the globe.

In 2016, Politico reported that Soros had channeled millions into seven local district-attorney campaigns in six states.

The victories achieved by Soros-funded attorneys has resulted in soft-on-crime law "enforcement" in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Philadelphia.
