Myanmar: Stop the Ethnic Cleansing

    Friday, September 22, 2017 - 12:24

    Since the coordinated attacks on dozens of security posts on 25 August, the Myanmar security forces have carried out an unlawful and disproportionate campaign of violence and ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya community. Amnesty International has documented killings, indiscriminate firing of weapons in civilian areas, widespread burning of homes and villages, and the planting of landmines on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.  Over 400,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh since 25 August 2016.

    • Ensure free and unimpeded access to Rakhine state to humanitarian actors such as: the UN, independent journalists and human rights monitors and ensure their safety and security.
    • Ensure that all refugees and displaced people are able to return to their homes voluntarily, in safety and with dignity;
    • Cooperate fully with the UN Fact-Finding Mission (FFM), including by allowing its members full and unfettered access to all parts of the country.
