Myanmar: Crimes against humanity in eastern Myanmar
This report focuses on violations of international human rights and humanitarian law committed in Kayin State and Bago Division between 2005 through 2007. It includes information on violations committed in military operations by the Myanmar army (known as the tatmadaw) and on tatmadaw policy and practices that have targeted civilians. Amnesty International is further concerned that the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC, Myanmar’s military government) has not met its obligations under international law to protect civilians from widespread human rights abuses in the context of the armed conflict.
