We the undersigned - Myanmar human rights activists, democrats, refugees, IDPs and exiles, as well as international campaigners for justice and accountability– pledge to offer our assistance in all possible ways toward ICC processes which hold Myanmar generals accountable for international crimes. Myanmar peoples have no possibility of justice for the military’s crimes within the national legal system.
We are deeply shocked and troubled by the Myanmar military coup led by the Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. Military coups are not considered crimes under international law, we are aware.
However, the same Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. as the most senior leader of Myanmar Tatmadaw, bears the ultimate command responsibility for Myanmar
or military’s international crimes including: genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Rakhine state; and war crimes and crimes against humanity in Shan, Kachin, Kokant, Karen, Karenni and Mon states.
We support the full investigation launched by the International Criminal Court (ICC) into Min Aung Hlaing-led Tatmadaw’s international crimes including the international crimes of deportation and other grave crimes against 800,000 Rohingyas in 2016 and 2017.
We are confident that the ICC will find solid evidence to establish the criminal responsibility of Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and other commanders for egregious human rights crimes against Myanmar national minorities, protected by international law and inter-state treaties such as the Genocide Convention. We will continue to offer the ICC our individual and collective assistance in every phase of the ICC investigation and ICC trial of Myanmar’s international criminals such as Min Aung Hlaing. We will continue until he is arrested and taken to the Hague to face justice.
