The Tatmadaw (military) set up a panel on Wednesday to investigate evidence of human rights abuses carried out by terrorists in northern Rakhine State on August 25, 2017, according to the military’s True News agency.

The agency said in a statement that the military invited submissions of evidence such as eyewitness reports, photos, documents, audio and video files related to the terrorist attacks.




The name of the sender and other details, such as address, phone number, email address, proof of citizenship or identity, should be included, said the statement.


It added that people wishing to give in-person interviews may contact the administration department of the Court of Enquiry or the military’s Tactical Operations Command in Buthidaung township.

On May 18, the military set up an investigation panel to further scrutinise and verify reports of incidents on northern Rakhine. 

The new panel, led by Major General Myat Kyaw, includes Colonel Kyaw Kyaw Naing and Colonel Than Naing.

The military said it will dissect reports of attacks by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army in northern Rakhine as well as verify reports of alleged human rights abuses compiled by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and the United Nations’ Fact-Finding Mission.

Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director of Human Rights Watch, said the statement shows that the military is under increasing pressure to account for the crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing committed in Rakhine in 2017. 

Last January, the government established an Independent Commission of Enquiry, which said in a statement on its website that it has received 43 submissions that were posted on its website and social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube last December.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General António Guterres appointed the head of an Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar on Wednesday.

More than 150 people were killed when ARSA fighters attacked more than 30 police outposts in northern Rakhine on August 25, 2017. In retaliation, the military launched a massive crackdown that caused more than 700,000 Muslims to flee Rakhine to Bangladesh.
