A UNSC Commission of Inquiry is needed to protect Burma’s people

In January to March 2010, the SPDC continued to perpetrate crimes against humanity and war crimes with total impunity, highlighting the urgent need for a UN Security Council-mandated Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma.

In the three-month period, the following were documented:

  • At least nine victims of extrajudicial killings.
  • At least four instances of forced labor.
  • An additional 4,100 people were forcibly displaced in military attacks that targeted civilians.
  • At least 11 people subjected to arbitrary imprisonment.
  • The continued use of torture.
  • At least one case of rape and sexual violence.
  • Systematic and widespread persecution of Muslim Rohingya communities.
  • At least two children were recruited as child soldiers.
