Myanmar military committing 'war crimes' against minorities:Advocacy Group

 Yangon,June 15:--A leading international advocacy group on Wednesday accused Myanmar military and armed rebels of committing a range of human rights abuses including war crimes against the members of ethnic minorities in Myanmar's restive Kachin state.


"Many civilians in northern Myanmar, as well as experts who have monitored the situation for years, fear the conflict is intensifying — and that violations of human rights and humanitarian law could worsen," according to an Amnesty International report based on more than 140 interviews conducted on the ground between March and May 2017.


"To avoid such a situation, accountability and respect for human rights need to be at the centre of the Myanmar government’s agenda," the human rights group said.


It called on all sides to the conflict to end the pattern of violations and abuses against civilians, urging the Myanmar authorities to "end the cycle of impunity by investigating and prosecuting violations by all sides to the conflicts".
