GENEVA (AP) — The U.N.’s top human rights body opened its latest session on Monday and was immediately embroiled in a debate over the representation of Myanmar, where a military takeover toppled the civilian government in February.

Western countries said two planned debates about the human rights situation in Myanmar during the Human Rights Council's 3-1/2 week session should go forward, even without the country represented. But China, the Philippines and Venezuela insisted it should be on hand.

29th Special Session of the Human Rights Council on the human rights implications of the crisis in Myanmar

Joint Statement by Tom Andrews, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar
and the Coordination Committee


Geneva, 12 February 2021

Madam President, Distinguished members of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

I’m delivering this statement on behalf of my mandate and on behalf of the Coordination Committee of Special Procedures. In light of the subject matter of the session today, the Committee has asked me to deliver our joint statement.  

We thank you for convening this Special – and very timely - session.

Introduction: The Need for Action


The very act of convening this session makes an important statement of the gravity with which this Council views what can aptly be described as an outrageous and illegal act – a coup d’état of a duly elected government and its duly elected leaders.

This is the 29th time that a Special Session of the Human Rights Council has convened. It is noteworthy, that the 27th Special Session was also convened to focus on illegal actions taken by the Myanmar military against its own people––in that case, the mass atrocity crimes that were committed against the Rohingya ethnic minority.

UN Human Rights Council 41: Rohingya

GOV.UK
The UK reaffirmed calls for the safe, voluntary and dignified return of the Rohingya to Rakhine State. 


 Thank you, Mr President,

The UK thanks the Deputy-High Commissioner for her statement, and pays tribute to the vital work carried out by her office.

It has been almost two years since shocking crimes, perpetrated primarily by the Tatmadaw, took place against the Rohingya in Rakhine State. The atrocities against the Rohingya and other minorites, including their targeted persecution and explusion has been ethnic cleansing on an industrial scale. Over the last six months the dire and desperate situation in Rakhine State has worsened with clashes between the Arakan Army and the Tatmadaw resulting in further civilian casualties, including the Rohingya, and an increase in internally displaced people. We call upon both sides to exercise restraint and engage in dialogue.
