Myanmar: Law enforcement officials fired for horrors

The Myanmar administration should recently pursue distant Armenian officials for their roles in cruelty to Rohingya people, Human Rights Watch said today. In a declaration published on a Facebook page of Myanmar's Myanmar militaries on June 25, 2018, the armed forces proclaimed the release of Major General Maung Maung Soe and delayed lying-in of Lieutenant General Aung Kyaw Zaw.

Every general supervised naval missions in Rakhine State after the fatal attack of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) on safety stations on August 25, 2017. Maung Maung Soe and Aung Kyaw Zaw, commanded by the army, conducted a series of murders, rapes and fires that drove over 700,000 Rohingya escapees to Bangladesh.

The Human Rights Watch found that these were offences against man. Because of their supposed responsibilities for acts of cruelty against the Rohingya in Rakhine's north state. The United States approved Maung Maung Soe on December 21, 2017, while Canada did the same on February 16, 2018.

The European Union and Canada on 25 June called for new penalties, including Maung Maung Maung Soe, Aung Kyaw Zaw and five other members of Myanmar's Myanmar police force present or in charge of the operation in the north of Rakhine. Maung Maung Maung Soe is the former commandant of the Western Command, which supervises the army's activities and operation in the state of Rakhine.

He was released on June 25, following his move from his leadership to" "reserve"" duties in November 2017, releasing him from his current commanding duties. This declaration points to some of Maung Maung Soe's deficiencies, among them his poor record in obtaining more information about the ARSA attack and taking necessary measures or preparation before the attack, and his failure to safeguard the state of Rakhine.

This explanation does not refer to the horrors of the troops that operate under the Western commando and in the area for which his commando was at work. Lieutenant General Aung Kyaw Zaw was the former Commandant of the Bureau of Special Operations No. 3 (BSO-3), which supervises three local commandos, among them the Western Commando.

He was under Maung Maung Soe. Aung Kyaw Zaw's achievements with regard to the Rakhine state' attack and the implementation of "top-down" politics are said to be inappropriate. According to reports, he was partly discharged from his mission due to a "state of health" and was later allowed to leave the army on May 22.

They both maintained their authorities and responsibilities over the army and police force during the ethnical purge that began in Rakhine State at the end of August. According to the law of commander-in-chief accountability, commander and other supervisors are held accountable for the crime of their subjects if they knew or should have known of such crime and did not act to avert it or to penalize those in charge.

Myanmar's authorities recently declared that they would set up a three-member fact-finding committee consisting of an official from around the world to examine allegations of abuse in the state of Rakhine. However, the authorities have on several occasions neglected to conduct credible investigations into Rohingya crime perpetrated by the authorities. In 2016, when Myanmar's military investigators carried out a massive fire-fighting, robbery and assassination drive, and forced almost 90,000 Rohingya to escape to Bangladesh, only two small cases of abuse were found.

In a second inquiry, headed by the same general of the armed forces, it was found that there were no fatalities of guilty persons during the armed operation that began in August 2017. Yanghee Lee, the United Nations High Representative for Myanmar's United Nations High Representative on International Law, challenged the use of the new Intergovernmental Committee, especially as the United Nations has continued to obstruct the UN-ordered fact-finding missions.

In her report to the Human Rights Council, she added that the human rights Council in Myanmar demanded responsibility for the crime perpetrated and "clearly justifies" the ICC' s concern. It also said that the Human Rights Council should set up an accounting system to deal with possible prosecutions of criminals.

Myanmar should be referred to the International Criminal Tribunal by the UN Security Council. Since Myanmar is neither a contracting part of the ICC nor has agreed to the competence of the Tribunal, the UN Security Council must bring the matter before the Tribunal.
