Amal Clooney Wore a Powerful Red Dress to the United Nations General Assembly
Amal Clooney is in New York City this weekend to attend the United Nations General Assembly. Clooney was photographed in a stunning red dress and nude shoes on her way to a UN event yesterday.
Clooney kept her accessories—nude pumps and a —low-key, letting her red Oscar de la Renta caped dress take centerstage in the street style photos paparazzi snapped while she was en route to the UN.
On Friday, the celebrated human rights lawyer attended Press Behind Bars: Undermining Justice and Democracy, an event for the Committee to Protect Journalists.
Clooney is representing Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who were arrested in December 2019 and sentenced this month to seven years in prison after being found guilty of possessing Myanmar state secrets. Many, however, see the journalists' arrests and subsequent convictions as punishment for reporting they did on the killing of 10 Rohingya men in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, according to Time.
Clooney called the process a "sham trial" and called on Myanmar's leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, to pardon the journalists.
"[Aung San Suu Kyi] knows that mass murder is not a state secret and that exposing it doesn’t turn a journalist into a spy," Clooney said. "She is the Nobel Peace Prize winner whose name was whispered in the halls of St. Hugh’s College, Oxford, where she and I both studied. When I was a student, she was a hero to me, as she has been to so many human rights advocates around the world and to so many of the 50 million people in Myanmar, whose lives she promised to change."
Clooney continued with a direct call for Suu Kyi to take action.
"Aung San Suu Kyi knows better than anyone what it is like to be a political prisoner in Myanmar. She has slept in a cell at the prison where Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo now sleep," Clooney said.
