The Rohingya crisis: The Myanmar military confesses to murders
Myanmar's military has for the first time acknowledged that its troops were part of the illegal assassination of Rohingya Muslims in the recent Rakhine state outbreak. She said an investigation revealed that four members of the police were implicated in the murder of ten persons in the Inn Din community near Maungdaw.
Burma has been charged with conducting racial cleansings in the state of Rakhine. Since the outbreak of last August, more than 650,000 Rohingya have escaped to neighboring Bangladesh, with horrific tales of massive murders, racism and tortures. With the support of indigenous buddhistic groups, they blame the army for burnt down their communities and attack ed and killed civilised people.
Myanmar's army has declined to target any civilian and is insisting that it only fight Rohingya fighters. Burma has declined to allow Rakhine to investigate the charges of abuse to reporters and outside agents. "It' s correct that both the village people and the police have acknowledged that they murdered the 10 Bengali terrorists," she said, using her common expression to relate to the Rohingya fighters.
It is a seldom confession of misconduct by the Myanmar army. By November, the army cleared itself of the responsibility for the recent violent acts and illegally refused to accept the killings of Rohingya, burned towns, rape of wives and daughters or the theft of property. The UN humanitarian mediator Yanghee Lee was to go to Myanmar this past December, but was forbidden in December after the administration reproached her for not being "impartial and goal-orient.
Said the choice to stop her "something terrible" happened in Rakhine.
