Description

Being denied access to sites where some of the most horrific crimes and human rights violations are alleged to have taken place during the military’s brutal repression of dissent, is a major challenge for the IIMM, the UN-appointed Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar.

But the investigation team has nonetheless been able to interview victims and witnesses outside the country and sift through a vast amount of useful data that has laid at least the groundwork for future prosecutions, says the IIIMM head, Nicholas Koumjian.

He explained to UN News’s Vibhu Mishra how the UN Human Rights Council-mandated independent investigators go about their work, and what they hope to achieve.
