Impunity Prolonged: Burma and its 2008 Constitution

By International Center for Transitional Justice  •  October 8, 2009

The international community should withhold support for Burma’s 2010 elections and not accept the results of the vote unless the government amends the country’s constitution to end impunity for human rights violations, the International Center for Transitional Justice says in a new report.

Civil society and international organizations should meanwhile develop a coordinated approach for gathering information about human rights violations in Burma, to help prepare for eventual prosecutions and other measures dealing with the military government’s long legacy of impunity.
