Myanmar: Human rights still denied

Index Number: ASA 16/018/1994

Although the SLORC has taken a number of tentative steps to indicate to the international community a willingness to address human rights problems in Myanmar, AI believes that there has been no fundamental change in its attitude towards respecting the human rights of its citizens. This report discusses ongoing violations in Myanmar, including political detention, such as that of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi; use of the death penalty; and violations against the Karen, Mon and Shan ethnic minorities. AI is concerned that certain well-publicized actions by the SLORC should not divert attention from the ongoing human rights violations in Myanmar.
