Between July 2008 and December 2009, SPDC military operations displaced at least 118, 800 people in Eastern Burma, including 43,800 refugees and 75,000 internally displaced persons. The number of displaced people by the SPDC is likely to grow even more as the SPDC prepares for its elections later this year.

In January, SPDC Army crimes against humanity and war crimes displaced another 2,000 people in Pegu Division. These crimes further highlight the urgent need for a UN Security Council-mandated Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma.
