Replacing Impunity with Accountability

Published date:

Following the apparent murder of a Karen National Liberation Army soldier, the Border Guard Force, a military organization under direct control of the Tatmadaw, launched an investigation into the incident and arrested five of its soldiers in relation to the case. KHRG recognizes this as a necessary first step in fulfilling their obligations under international law. However, there need to be similar investigations and access to justice in cases where soldiers have commited violations against civilians. Only then will impunity be replaced with accountability in southeast Myanmar.
