The Asia Pacific Partnership for Atrocity Prevention (APPAP) Members Statement on Myanmar 20 June 2019

20 Jun 2019

The Asia Pacific Partnership for Atrocity Prevention (APPAP) is an alliance of organisations working to promote human rights and support atrocity prevention in the region.

The undersigned members of APPAP hold grave concerns for civilians, and ethnic and religious minorities in Myanmar, including the stateless Rohingyas, following reports of increased violence in Rakhine State between Arakan Army insurgents and the Tatmadaw, as well as violent attacks on Muslims during the Ramadan period in Yangon.  We call on the Myanmar Government and the military to uphold the responsibility to protect all citizens and vulnerable populations from atrocities.
