UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday appointed Noeleen Heyser of Singapore as his new special envoy on Myanmar, the United Nations said in a statement.

Heyser, a former senior UN official, will replace Christine Schraner Burgener, who finishes up this weekend after more than three years in the role. Protests and unrest have paralysed Myanmar since a February 1 military coup ousted Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government.
