Myanmar: ASEAN Leaders must help end atrocities by the military

Index Number: ASA 16/6191/2022

Almost two years after the military coup, over 1.4 million people are displaced inside Myanmar, 12,839 people are detained in inhumane conditions, at least 73 people remain on death row, and 7.8 million children are out of school. The Myanmar military has killed hundreds of protesters and bystanders, and thousands have died a result of armed conflict across the country since the coup. The Myanmar military is flagrantly ignoring calls to respect human rights, including the ASEAN five-point consensus which they agreed to implement in April 2021. ASEAN must act with the utmost urgency to convince the Myanmar military to stop committing atrocities and listen to the Myanmar people who are the key stakeholders. There is no time for further delay.
