Briefing by Amnesty International

Source: Amnesty International

Amnesty International has released a brief entitled " MYANMAR- Briefing Paper: No Return to "Normal""

In the briefing, Amnesty International detailed evidence of killings, tortures, and arrests of peaceful protesters.

In the statement, Amnesty International urges the Myanmar authorities to:
· account for those killed by providing the names of the victims and the cause of their deaths to the Special Rapporteur and the general public.
· allow the Special Rapporteur access to all crematoria and their records, as an initial step toward a full-scale independent investigation into reports of secret cremations by state authorities.
· carry out independent, impartial and prompt investigations into all deaths in custody.
· ensure that those responsible for unlawful killings are brought to justice.
