October 2015

The Burmese authorities have failed to implement most of the recommendations from Resolution 69/248 adopted in 2014. In 2015, authorities continued to either fail to address, or collude in serious human rights violations, and took steps to undermine the possibility of ‘free and fair’ elections on 8 November: 3.2 million people are excluded from voting in the 2015 elections; Naypyidaw passed discriminatory laws backed by extremists while tens of thousands of Rohingya fled persecution causing May's 'boatpeople crisis'; a new war erupted in Kokang Self-Administered Zone and the Tatmadaw continued civilian abuses; arrests and imprisonments of political activists and human rights defenders increased by 172%.
