Burma Justice Committee Presents Petitions to The United Nations

Source: The Burma Campaign UK

The Burma Justice Committee was launched Thursday in the House of Lords. The Committee has been formed against the backdrop of continuing human rights abuses within Burma, as the military junta continues to repress anyone who questions their regime. Following the recent uprisings in protest at the doubling of fuel prices, many have been killed, imprisoned, and beaten by representatives of the junta.

The Burma Justice Committee will work for the restoration of the rule of law within Burma, and will fight against the violation of the human rights of innocent citizens. Comprised of lawyers, parliamentarians and other representatives, the Committee has today presented petitions to the United Nations’ Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, on behalf of [three] Burmese currently detained by the Junta.
