The NUG has repeatedly called to question General Zaw Min Tun, a spokesman for the military council, about the NUG’s efforts to bring the killings to justice in international courts, including the International Criminal Court (ICC).

On December 24, 2021, in Mo So Village, Phuso Township, Kayah State, it was one day. In one place, 49 people were killed, including women and children.

A family member who lost up to four relatives in the killing said they could not believe the incident and did not receive justice until five months later.

“I still can’t believe it,” he said. But I could not believe it. It has been five months now. I can no longer hear the sound. I thought so because I could not see the picture. I think justice is still a long way off. And why so much? Why? I want to know the answer. I want action to be taken until justice is done. Until justice is done. “

He is a brother. Two cousins ​​and one cousin were killed, for a total of four.

On the military council side, the KNPP and PDFs sent small arms and ammunition to the army from seven vehicles driving towards Moso village on the old side of Kwanin village. It is alleged that the shootings started with grenades.

A villager in Mong Tai Pin said he was “deeply saddened” by the tragedy.

“It’s really bad,” he said. It was a brutal massacre with no humanity at all. I feel sorry for the people who fell. I was sad. This is a process that can not be felt at all. The people are shocked. When fear sets in, when you hear a ticking sound, get ready to run. Some are not even in the village. They go to places where they think they will escape. Avoid They move from place to place and do that. “There is panic.”

Massacre of unarmed or unprotected people; In one place In the same area at the same time or day; I committed it every month. Victims are one-sided. The NUG’s Ministry of Human Rights has defined what happens as a single massacre as a sign of genocide.

In addition, the victims are of the same race or ethnicity. Same religion Same group The same thing happens often. The pattern of killing and burial is the same. The motives for the killings were similar to those of the massacre.

Min Lwin Oo, a human rights lawyer, said the acts could be prosecuted as crimes against humanity.

“Homes are being destroyed. The issue of mass arson is a matter of public peace and tranquility. It is a clear violation of independence. They are seen as inhumane. “Such acts are crimes against humanity that are punishable by war crimes.”
