The early release of the seven soldiers involved in the Inn Din Massacre against Rohingya civilians, Burma again shows its disregard for human rights, truth, and accountability. While the Burmese Government and Military attempt to convince the world that they are capable of holding themselves accountable, they have repeatedly failed to demonstrate even the slightest understanding of justice or the value of human life of ethnic and religious minorities.

17 December 2018 – London – The U.N. Human Rights Council’s mandate to establish a new independent mechanism in September was a landmark moment for our fight for accountability for the crimes committed against the Burmese people, including the Rohingya. Ensuring the mechanism is now fully funded to get to work is crucial for ensuring the justice our brothers and sisters were promised can finally begin to be delivered. Accountability is also an essential precursor for safe, voluntary and dignified returns.
The mechanism – which will conduct investigations and prepare trial-ready cases – will also be particularly important for attempting to halt the ongoing abuses against the Rohingya and other minorities in Burma, which continue to this day.

The Burma Human Rights Network (BHRN) is disheartened by the announcement that Leeds United football club is planning to play two matches inside of Burma. The matches will be sponsored by AYA Bank, owned by Zaw Zaw; a crony of the Burmese military who is blacklisted by the United States Government for this connection. Burma’s security forces stand accused of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya population, in parallel to intensifying human rights violations against the ethnic Kachin and Shan people.
Commenting on the announcement today BHRN’s Executive Director, Kyaw Win, said: “It is a deeply disappointing decision against the backdrop grave atrocities committed by the Burmese military. It is unthinkable that the club have decided to partner with an individual with established ties to those responsible for these atrocities. I urge Leeds United to immediately reconsider their decision – to go ahead is to be complicit in normalizing individuals and entities implicated in war crimes.
