Myanmar: Gay Men and Transgender Women Wrongfully Arrested, Violently Abused

in MYANMAR, 31/07/2013

IGLHRC and Myanmar LGBT Rights Network Call for Justice.

The Myanmar LGBT Rights Network and IGLHRC are calling for a full and fair investigation into police conduct on July 6 and 7. The police officers responsible should be identified and brought to justice, regardless of position or rank. We urge the President of Mayanmar, the Chairman of Parliament, the Police Chief of the Myanmar Police Force, and the Chairperson of the Myanmar National Human Rights Commission to respect and promote the human rights of all people, including LGBT persons, to the right to assembly, expression, due process, equality, and non-discrimination before the law.
