Myanmar: UN support is still required to improve the human rights situation Amnesty International’s written statement to the 31st session of the UN Human Rights Council (29 February-24 March 2016)

, Índice: ASA 16/3436/2016

The recent elections in Myanmar should not be seen as a sign that the UN Human Rights Council’s (Council/HRC) engagement is no longer needed in Myanmar. When it assumes power at the beginning of April 2016, Myanmar’s new government will be confronted with a wide range of human rights challenges, and it is unclear, at this stage, what capacity it will have to address them. The Council’s attention on the human rights situation in Myanmar is still necessary to ensure the new government receives the support it needs to fulfil its international human rights obligations and commitments.
