HRW urges the UN Security Council to take effective action against the Myanmar military council.

Human rights watchdog HRW urged the Security Council to effectively deal with the Myanmar military, which continues to commit violence without implementing the UN Security Council's resolution on Myanmar.

On March 13, the United Nations Security Council will hold a closed-door meeting on the Myanmar issue, and reports will be submitted by the UN Secretary-General's Special Representative for Myanmar Ms. Noeleen Heyzer and ASEAN's Special Representative for Myanmar, Indonesian Foreign Minister, Ms. Retno Marsudi.

The Security Council passed a resolution on Myanmar affairs on December 21st 2022, and in that resolution, there include the Myanmar Military Council to release cessation of terrorist attacks, to release all political prisoners, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and to allow humanitarian aid to be freely given.

However, the Burmese military council is not doing these things and is only carrying out more continuous acts of violence against the people, so human rights groups are urging the UN Security Council to deal effectively with it.

The Burmese army continues to kill, unjustly arrest, and persecute and thus, the United Nations Office for Human Rights has also said that the ongoing violence, including the disappearance of opponents of the military coup, is constantly creating a major human rights problem.

Two years after the military coup, the United Nations Human Rights Office said that the military generals are using a policy of overthrowing the opposition.

At least 2,940 people have been killed and 17,572 were arrested by the army since the coup, citing credible sources. It also shows that almost 80 percent of the 330 townships across the country are affected by armed conflict.
