Myanmar: Human Rights NGOs call for robust EU action for justice

14/09/2018 – Since October 2016, the Myanmar security forces have driven more than 810,000 Rohingya women, men and children into Bangladesh as a result of successive operations in northern Rakhine State marked by crimes under international law. Security forces killed thousands of Rohingya women, men, and children, raped hundreds of Rohingya women and girls and burned several hundred villages to the ground. Human rights violations, including systematic discrimination and segregation, are ongoing against the Rohingya who remain in Rakhine State, and have forced more than 13,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh since the beginning of 2018.
