Myanmar army trying to hide crimes against humanity targeting Rohingyas: AI

Amnesty International has alleged that Myanmar's military is trying to sweep serious violations against the Rohingya under the carpet.

"Once again, Myanmar's military is trying to sweep serious violations against the Rohingyas under the carpet," said Amnesty International's Regional Director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific James Gomez.

In response to findings released after the Myanmar military's internal investigation into violence in northern Rakhine State since August 25, Gomez said there is overwhelming evidence that the military has murdered and raped Rohingyas and burned their villages to the ground.

"After recording countless stories of horror and using satellite analysis to track the growing devastation, we can only reach one conclusion: these attacks amount to crimes against humanity," said the official.

Mentioning that Myanmar military has made clear it has no intention of ensuring accountability, Gomez said it is now up to the international community to step up to ensure these appalling abuses do not go unpunished.

"The full extent of the violations against the Rohingyas and other ethnic minorities will not be known until the UN Fact-Finding Mission and other independent observers are given unfettered access to Myanmar, and in particular Rakhine State," he said. UNB
