Riot in Tokyo Concert (r)

Urgent Action:

It is a conclusion that the official ambassador of  SPDC to Japan has
full responsibility for the physical attack to the two activists. 

An confirm source from Japan told to an activist in U.S. that one of
the attackers was Dr. Tun Aye, husband of Mya Mya Win. 

No matter what, the activists in Japan should report all account how
the attacks were occurred, who involved in it, how did the ambassador
response to it, how many were the embassy officials involving in it,
how were the victims injured, and what the activists will do to Dr. Tun

Please let us know all factors?
