Extreme Measures: Torture and Ill Treatment in Burma since the 2010 Elections
This report by The Network for Human Rights Documentation – Burma (ND-Burma) documents the Government of Burma’s use of torture and ill treatment against its own people since the November 2010 elections.
“The international community has been applauding the government for recent gestures towards change; essentially they are praising the government for continuing to violate the fundamental rights of the people of Burma,” said Twan Zaw from All Arakan Students’ and Youths’ Congress and a leader of ND-Burma’s Advocacy Team. “For there to be a real progress towards genuine democracy, the government must address the lack of domestic legislation against torture, the absence of an independent judiciary and the current system of impunity.”
