Press Release

The UNCTFMR in its press release on October 14, 2020 raised its concerns regarding the death of two children resulting from a clash between the Tatmadaw and AA terrorists in Buthidaung Township, Rakhine State on October 5, 2020.
In order to prevent its servicemen from violating the rights of children, the Tatmadaw issued a directive on August 22, 2020 ordering its servicemen to abide by the provisions of the Myanmar Child Rights Law; to take necessary and effective action against any violations of the provisions; and to supervise in accordance with existing command structures to prevent any violations.
Even prior to the press release by UNCTFMR with regards to what happened, the Tatmadaw carried out a preliminary investigation. The Tatmadaw is currently conducting a detailed investigation to ascertain the initial findings and the accuracy of what happened in an accountable manner. The findings of the investigation will be released further.
