To ask Her Majesty's Government what options they have considered to ensure that the violence perpetrated in Burma is adequately assessed and those responsible brought to justice.
The UK co-sponsored the UN Human Rights Council Resolution in March 2017 that commissioned the Fact Finding Mission into human rights violations by military and security forces, and abuses, in Burma, in particular in Rakhine State; we await its final report in September 2018.
Burma announced on 31 May that it plans to establish a Commission of Inquiry into human rights abuses in Rakhine. We have made clear that there must be a credible, transparent and impartial investigation, which holds to account the perpetrators of atrocities in Rakhine State. We will continue to work with our international partners to support those building evidence and testimony for the victims of the violence in Rakhine.
