Christopher Gunness, director of the Myanmar Accountability Project and former chief spokesman for UNRWA, criticized the suspension of funding for UNRWA by Germany and other countries as disproportionate and punitive. Gunness emphasized that the UN agency took allegations of neutrality violations seriously and proactively dismissed individuals involved. He called on Germany to reestablish its aid to UNRWA to prevent further suffering of vulnerable populations.
