The situation in Burma as shown by UN statements

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesman Stéphane Dujarric told a news conference in New York on Thursday: “I am deeply concerned about the latest developments in the country. “It’s against the demands of the president and other political prisoners, not just Aung San Suu Kyi,” he said.

On June 23, VOA released Tom Andrews, the UN special envoy for human rights in Burma, who warned that more people would die and suffer more if Asean could not increase its pressure on the Burmese military. People will suffer more. It is impossible for the people of Burma to continue like this for another year. “

The international community needs to respond as soon as possible, as the post-coup crisis in Burma poses a threat to the region as well. UN Secretary-General Special Representative for Burma, Noeleen Heyzer, said at the Shangri-La Dialogue Asia Security Conference in Singapore that growing violence and instability were affecting beyond the borders of the country. In addition, violence and instability in Burma will escalate if Noeleen Hayzer is not allowed to freely exercise the political rights of all citizens through inclusive political dialogue. The military continues to use excessive force, intensifying its attacks on civilians and stepping up its resistance. It also uses airstrikes. The United Nations General Assembly (UN General Assembly) warned on June 13 that civilian buildings and villages were being set on fire and internally displaced persons were being attacked.

“14.4 million people, a quarter of Burma’s population, including hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees, were in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. UNHCR says the number of refugees in Burma has been steadily rising since the military coup. The United Nations now estimates the number of displaced people at more than 1.2 million.”

UNHCR says the number of refugees in Burma has been steadily rising since the military coup. The United Nations now estimates the number of displaced people at more than 1.2 million.

War Violence; Conflict or oppression; There are more than 27 million refugees worldwide due to the need for international protection. Syria has the highest number of refugees, followed by Afghanistan, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Congo UN refugee agency spokesman Shabia Mantoo said in Geneva that South Sudan and Burma had the highest number of refugees.

The United Nations Independent Commission of Inquiry into Burma (IIMM) said on June 20 that the death penalty by the Burmese military council could be an international crime. The IIMM said in a statement that the death penalty or imprisonment for violating the basic principles required for a fair trial could be a crime against humanity or a war crime. The IIMM said in a statement on June 3 that a military tribunal had sentenced four people, including 88 Generation leader Jimmy and former NLD MP Phyo Zeyar Thaw, to death by a military tribunal without a public hearing. The military council’s move violates international law. It also points out that this is a clear violation of the fundamental rights of individuals accused of committing crimes.

“The real situation in Burma is in danger of collapsing its social and economic infrastructure. Half of the country’s population lives in poverty. Armed conflict is a daily occurrence of the people. Despite the military council calling 2022 the year of peace, it has sidelined pro-democracy forces, including the National Unity Government (NUG). Elections to be held by the military council in 2023 will be a democratic process for all political forces. Equitable Due to the lack of equal participation, it is not possible to implement and this election will only deepen the violence and instability in the country. The political crisis in Burma can only be resolved if all parties representing the country are allowed to participate. He emphasized the need for the United Nations and ASEAN to work together, and called for an all-inclusive process aimed at effective humanitarian intervention.”
