New report by Network for Human Rights Documentation – Burma Details Continuing Human Rights Violations by Burmese Military against its Citizens

By Network for Human Rights Documentation – Burma  •  March 10, 2015

periodic report july - decND-Burma has published its periodic report covering the second-mid period of 2014 and focuses on 107 documented cases of human rights violations in Burma from July to December 2014. The violations documented during these six months occurred in areas of armed conflict but also in areas covered by ceasefires.

ND-Burma’s findings demonstrate that, despite progress in reaching ceasefire agreements with non-state armed groups, the government has made little progress protecting the human rights of its citizens. Furthermore, continued arrests of human rights defenders demonstrate that the government is not serious about working with civil society to protect human rights.

Mai Thin Yu Mon, advocacy team member states “ Our data shows that the volume of human rights violation doesn’t go down during the second half of 2014 and become even worse, especially where armed-conflicts are happening which will surely become barriers in trust building which will be crucial for the current peace process of the country.”
