Mandate

လုပ်ပိုင်ခွင့်

The Human Rights Council on 24 March 2017 decided (through Resolution A/HRC/RES/34/22) to dispatch urgently an independent international fact-finding mission, to be appointed by the President of the Human Rights Council, to establish the facts and circumstances of the alleged recent human rights violations by military and security forces, and abuses, in Myanmar, in particular in Rakhine State, including but not limited to arbitrary detention, torture and inhuman treatment, rape and other forms of sexual violence, extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary killings, enforced disappearances, forced displacement and unlawful destruction of property, with a view to ensuring full accountability for perpetrators and justice for victims, and requests the fact-finding mission to present to the Council an oral update at its thirty-sixth session and a full report at its thirty-seventh session.

Call for Submissions

တင်ပြချက်များ ခေါ်ဆိုချက်

The Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar invites interested individuals, groups and organisations to submit information and/or documentation relevant to its mandate as outlined above, in particular on allegations of human rights violations and abuses committed in Myanmar since January 2011.

The Fact-Finding Mission accepts submissions in the English and Myanmar languages at: ffmmyanmarsub@ohchr.org. Submissions in other minority languages of Myanmar will be accepted, although they will take longer to review.

Information may be submitted at any time, and the Fact-Finding Mission encourages early submissions if possible. The final deadline for information is 15 February 2018, after which it will become increasingly difficult to take submissions into account.

Submissions should include the name(s) and contact details of the author(s). Submitting entities/individuals should specify if their submissions, or parts of them, should be treated confidentially, and if so, which.

Please note that individual acknowledgements of receipt of information will not be sent to the author(s) unless specifically requested.
