The onslaught of cruelty and crimes against humanity by the Myanmar Military after the coup

Executive Summary

Myanmar is a country located in Southeast Asia, currently facing a military coup and resistance from the people. Since the 1 February 2021 coup, Burma Human Rights Network has documented the situation daily and reported on it monthly. Documentation by BHRN from February 1, 2021, to December 31, 2021, shows human rights violations and crimes committed by Military Junta are growing.

BHRN strongly believes that the Military Junta has committed crimes against humanity, as defined by the United Nations, by committing murder, extermination, enslavement, torture, rape, enforced disappearances, and persecution against political identity. The Myanmar Military Junta is committing this crime against humanity repeatedly.

This report presents and analyzes the documentation of daily crimes committed by the Myanmar Military Junta with the International Human Rights Standards. Action against the junta is urgently needed for crimes already committed and to protect the lives and safety of the Burmese people. BHRN recommends Individual and cooperative action against the Military Junta terror and support for humanitarian assistance to the Burmese people.
