After World War II, 130 leaders went into exile

   The exile of the head of state has existed since ancient times and continues to this day. After World War II, there were at least 130 kings, presidents, and prime ministers in exile in other countries. Among them, Latin America and Africa are the “big households” whose leaders are in exile. In some countries, such as Haiti and Bolivia, exile of leaders is a common political phenomenon.
   Some time ago, the Taliban leader drove straight into the city of Kabul. Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani didn’t even have time to change his shoes. He abandoned the country in slippers and fled, causing heated discussions.
   Heads of exile, is a good compromise
   results in the fight against these heads of exile, some considerable period features. For example, the prosperous national revolution after the end of World War II led to the exile of the monarchs of countries such as Romania, Egypt, and Iran. However, most of the leaders went into exile after the war as a result of military coups or popular resistance. Among them, the exile of Duhu (a ruthless ruler hated by the people) is the most noticeable.
   Some researchers believe that it is a good compromise to use the mediation of the international community to send them to exile overseas in the movement of people chasing off their own husbands. Give the independent husband a “life path” and they will not be stubbornly resisting. For example, in 1986, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, who has been in power for more than 20 years, aroused public outrage because of corruption and election fraud. Later, under the mediation of the United States, Marcos and his family fled Guam by a US military helicopter, and then went into exile in Hawaii.
   The president fled, president of the birth of inventory provisions
   and Marcos There are many similar examples, such as former Ugandan president Idi Amin and former Liberian President Charles Taylor.
   During the eight years when Idi Amin ruled Uganda, about 500,000 Ugandans were killed. In 1978, Amin was deposed by the local people. In order to save his life, he fled to Libya and then slipped to Saudi Arabia to apply for asylum. The Saudi government promised to protect his life, but it did not allow him to participate in political activities. In the end, Amin, known as the cruelest president in the world, survived under the protection of Saudi Arabia until his death in 2003.
   Charles Taylor was the first person to face an international court trial for war crimes. In July 2003, some countries led by the United States urged Taylor to step down and stopped economic assistance to Liberia. Under pressure from the international community, Taylor resigned on August 11 and fled to Nigeria. The Nigerian government provided him with a residence. On December 4, 2003, Interpol issued a “Red Note”, declaring that any country has the right to arrest Taylor in accordance with international law. On March 29, 2006, Taylor tried to escape into Cameroon, but was arrested by Nigerian security officers at the border. On May 30, 2012, Taylor was convicted of 11 counts of murder, rape, and forcing children to serve as soldiers, and was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
   Here, I have to mention the only South Korean president who successfully escaped-Lee Seungman.
   In 1960, when Rhee Seung-man became South Korean president for the fourth time, the “April 19th Revolution” occurred (due to the fraud in South Korea’s fourth-term presidential election, which led to protests by students and the public), his rule was overthrown by the people. Forced to submit his resignation to Congress on April 27, 1960. On May 29, he fled to Hawaii with his family and huge wealth. After that, Lee Seungman never returned to South Korea, and his descendants have been living in Hawaii.
   Rhee Seungman’s escape also gave South Korea a rule to check the president. After the president’s resignation, the first thing he did was to go to the prosecutor’s office for inspection.
   Also promising to ease the contradiction between the country and abandon the exodus
   to stress here is that there are real in order to ease domestic political conflicts and examples of abandoned country home. For example, former Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. Yingluck was elected to power through elections in 2011, and her political achievements were also good, but she and her brother Thaksin both took the civilian route, which is not tolerated by the traditional political forces in Thailand. The latter accused Yingluck of abusing power in the name of justice and forced her to step down in 2014. The conflicts between the red shirts who support Thaksin and Yingluck and the yellow shirts, the supporters of traditional forces, are difficult to alleviate. In May 2017, Yingluck “absconded” abroad, and all forces sighed, and the situation in Thailand temporarily eased. Yingluck later obtained Serbian citizenship.
   It can be seen that there are many exiled leaders, but the situation cannot be generalized.
