Myanmar: ICJ and other organizations write to UN Secretary General urging for human rights up front be actioned in Myanmar

An open letter to the UN Secretary General signed by 16 international NGOs regarding the recent report by Gert Rosenthal, “A Brief and Independent Inquiry into the Involvement of the United Nations in Myanmar from 2010 to 2018.”

The Rosenthal report describes the UN’s failure to stop, mitigate, or even draw attention to violence that the UN Independent International Fact-Finding Mission found amounted to crimes under international law including crimes against humanity, and warrants an investigation of the crime of genocide against Rohingya.
