Situation of human rights in Myanmar since 1 February 2022 - Report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
11 May 2023
The present report, prepared pursuant to Human Rights Council resolution 47/1, identifies trends and patterns of human rights violations that occurred in Myanmar between 1 February 2022 and 31 January 2023. Two years after launching a coup, the military has brought the country into a perpetual human rights crisis through the continuous use of violence, including killings, arbitrary arrests, torture, forcible disappearances and the prosecution and sentencing of anti-coup opponents. Urgent, concrete actions are needed to ensure that all people in Myanmar enjoy their fundamental rights and freedoms. The report contains recommendations for all parties, including the military authorities, the National Unity Government and the international community.
