  1. The Ministry of Human Rights (MOHR) has documented many evidences of murders and
    destruction of property committed by the socalled security forces of the military junta during the past
    two years of the attempted coup.
  2. This report documents the serious human rights violations and international crimes committed
    by Sagaing Regionbased LIB Nos. 361, 368 and 369 under the command of No. 10 Military
    Operations Command Headquarters (MOC10) in past three months from 1 November 2022 to 22
    January 2023. Since this report could only cover the cases verified with witnesses and survivors, most
    of whom with limited access to communications, the actual number of crimes committed by these
    terrorist troops could be higher. Our documentation indicates that there is a growing trend in number
    of crimes committed by these battalions from November 2022 and January 2023. All these cases
    indicated that these crimes were targeted against civilians with brutal murders and burning down of
    thousands of houses, forcing tens of thousands of civilians to flee their villages in Sagaing Region.
    The evidence indicate that the crimes committed by these three battalions may constitute crimes
    against humanity and war crimes. This report marks as a first step to prosecute perpetrators, both
    commanders and offenders, with international crimes.
