The Oxford City Council voted unanimously to support a motion that said it was "no longer appropriate" to celebrate Suu Kyi, who has come under fierce criticism for inaction in the face of reported atrocities against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine state, Britain's The Independent reported.
On Saturday, Oxford had decided to place her portrait in storage at St Hugh's college and replace it with a new painting gifted by Japanese artist Yoshihiro Takada.
"The painting of Aung San Suu Kyi has meanwhile been moved to a secure location," the college had said in a statement.
Oxford's decision to strip Suu Kyi of the Freedom award and the removal of her 1997 portrait comes a few days before new students arrive at the college to start their course.
Suu Kyi studied as an undergraduate student at the Oxford University, where she was granted the honour in 1997 for her 'struggle for democracy'. ||On Saturday, Oxford had decided to place her portrait in storage at St Hugh college.
