UN Human Rights Council 44 Interactive Dialogue with Special Rapporteur on Myanmar





Thank you, Madame President.

Thank you Special Rapporteur for your update. We welcome you to the role and encourage Myanmar to work with you as you fulfil your mandate.

Across Myanmar, the indiscriminate targeting of civilians remains a military tactic. The physical and mental suffering those civilians face, including sexual violence, is deeply disturbing.

The Tatmadaw’s ‘four cuts’ strategy endangers lives disproportionately and causes lasting damage to property and livelihoods. This month in Rakhine, Tatmadaw ‘clearance operations’ saw villages shelled and burnt, with reports suggesting the displacement of at least 10,000 civilians.

UN expert implores Myanmar’s Suu Kyi: “open your eyes, listen, feel with your heart

United Nation Human Rights (OHCHR)
17 September 2019


GENEVA (17 September 2019) – A UN human rights expert has implored Myanmar’s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi to ‘feel with her heart before it is too late’, saying that even if refugees wished to return they have little to go back to.

Yanghee Lee, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar, told the Human Rights Council the situation in Myanmar was of extreme concern, and was not what she and others had hoped to see nearly four years after the election of the National League for Democracy.

“I would like to ask the State Counsellor if the Myanmar that exists today is what she had truly aspired to bring about throughout the decades of her relentless fight for a free and democratic Myanmar? I implore you Madame State Counsellor to open your eyes, listen, feel with your heart, and please use your moral authority, before it is too late.”

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.

The European Union (EU) has extended sanctions, including a weapons embargo, against Myanmar for one year over the Myanmarese military’s deadly crackdown on minority Muslims in the country.

The European Council said in a statement on Monday that the sanctions included restrictions on arms, dual-use products, and surveillance equipment that could be used for “internal repression” in Myanmar’s Kachin, Rakhine, and Shan states, where minority Rohingya Muslims have been subjected to state-sponsored violence.
