UN rights chief urges new panel to prepare Myanmar prosecutions


The UN rights chief called Monday for the creation of a new “mechanism” tasked with preparing criminal indictments
over atrocities committed in Myanmar, amid allegations of genocide against the Rohingya minority.

In her first speech as head of the UN rights office, Michelle Bachelet called on the UN Human Rights Council to create “an independent international mechanism for Myanmar, to collect, consolidate, preserve and analyse evidence of the most serious international crimes, in order to expedite fair and independent trials in national and international courts.”
