"myanmar" Discussed on UN News
"We said that we were very concerned given the history of Myanmar of so many crimes against civilians occurring in political conflicts that we would be watching the situation closely. And what we've seen since then is, unfortunately, it appears that very serious crimes have been happening throughout the country in different regions in the country, systematically on a widespread basis. So we're collecting that information. And many different sources have been voluntarily reaching out to us to provide us with information. Others we have contacted. And we've collected, we received over 200,000 communications just in the first few months after the coup with information that people wanted to share with us. So it's increased the burden on us, but it's also given us that opportunity that we have more individuals and organizations willing to speak to us more opportunities to talk to those who have information about what is happening or has happened in the past in Myanmar. And this has created some opportunities for our investigations. Is it correct to say that some of the investigations you're conducting some of the information you're collecting wouldn't be otherwise collected? Yes, I believe that absolutely that's fair to say. I've worked on different war crime tribunals, the different processes for to seek accountability. And one of the things that we've seen in other conflicts is the importance of preserving information while it's still fresh. While you can because of course, crime scenes get disturbed, bodies decompose, wounds can heal, people's memories can fade, witnesses with information can die. And can pass away without that information being collected. So it's very important to collect the information while you can. Because unfortunately, international justice often is a long process..

"The boeing company blaming what they call the foreign pilot deflecting blame to to them city. They did that. Feel like a significant detail to you. The sort of blaming of the pilots. Yes for sure that was quintas carajas. Yes he lost five of his family numbers on the ethiopian airlines flight. There were times when boeing insinuated. Very strongly that the pilots were at fault. Thowing and a lot of people in the united states believe that american pilots would not have been in that circumstance because of higher levels of training they'd had and more experiences than say developing country pilots have had. There is a large sense of of the debate weighted towards the blame towards the developing country pilots. That was probably undeserved in this case. One thing that's striking about. Your documentary is what is not there. Boeing wouldn't talk to you. The faa wouldn't talk to you. I mean where is the accountability of the. I'm more a little. I guess. Journalistically grieved that the federal aviation administration wouldn't They are public servants after all. They refused to comment and boeing just had the sense that there's nothing that they could say in the light of three hundred forty six deaths that would make them look any better than they do and they didn't look very good. They're hoping desperately to just move on. It's not something the families though would really agree with. They're still suffering. That are still grieving for the loss. If they encountered boeing seven thirty-seven. Max are back in the air today or any changes made to the plane before they were put back into flight. The m caste system was given a second failsafe. It gives the pilots. Much more flexibility. It gives them a sense that they're in control and they got 'em counts now though. Faa put a rubber stamp on it and now we have about three hundred of the seven. Thirty seven max. Flying around the world and service would you riding. One i would. I would ride in senator. He said an accident. It's the most test airplane now in the world i. I'd be cautious. I've become much more cautious about flying.

"But then five thousand feet up and down just diving. The film is a production of frontline. Also produced here at gbh in boston. Jennings joins me now from new york tom. Your film condenses years of investigative journalism. I'm going to ask you to condense even further in the end. What brought the two boeing planes down. There is not one individual who brought down seven. Thirty seven max. It was all about group. Think it was about a certain kind of inertia at the federal aviation administration the regulator but it was also the corporation itself and how it had come to believe in its own sense of mission and engineering capacities. Its ability to do no wrong. What technically went wrong with the planes may what was the technical issue there was a software program embedded into the cockpit is called an cast. It was all about letting pilots handle the plane effectively that program though who was designed in a way that was only for the highest of rare in extreme circumstances but blowing decided a certain point to implement that at normal operating levels in that problem with that was if there is a malfunction with that caste system at low levels. The pilots didn't have time to respond to it if it went into malfunction. And that's exactly what happened in those two flights that went down. The documentary goes over the context in which the seven thirty seven max was brought to market. Even though there were host of red flags within boeing. Here's one of your new york times collaborators. All of this comes out of trying to give airlines the most fuel-efficient version of plainfield. They can spend as little money training their pilots on. To what extent was this a corporate culture problem and to what extent was just plain malfeasance on boeing's part or was it both it's both it's malfeasance in the sense that there was a demand placed upon the engineering design process from the highest ranks from the c. Level down to contain costs. Because of that pressure that natalie kitchen f in that clip was talking the airlines. Were demanding a very fuel. Efficient cost effective airplane. Any kind of thing that went into the design process that effectively increased. The cost to the airlines was really looked down upon that resulted in a full-on attempt to reduce the cost of training of pilots. It's interesting the crashes both happened. In developing countries indonesia and ethiopia. A man who you interviewed in ethiopia lost five people in his family in the crash and was told it wasn't boeing's fault at.

Today he's going into self isolation after possible exposure to cove it just prior to that however he met with serious president. Bush are allah saad. Russia militarily intervened on behalf of assad government in two thousand fifteen since then russia's bombing campaigns in syria have left many dead and wounded russia's also played the role of conflict mediator between the syrian government and opposition rebels to better understand russia's role in syria. We got in touch with mona uku. Ian she's a senior adviser at the united states institute of peace in washington mona. Let's start with a meeting between assad and putin. what was that about. i think that first shows very clearly. How beholden assad is to putin but we also see. I think russia trying to shape the narrative on syria trying to gain greater legitimacy for us this is following the presidential election this past spring widely viewed as a sham election. And i also attempting to demonstrate its influence in syria in the middle. East more broadly. I was going to ask why. Why did russia intervene. In the first place i mean. Why does it matter to russia. Well it came in the wake. Of course the arab uprisings and the assad regime was in great trouble in two thousand fifteen and was truly truly facing existential threat. And this is what prompted moscow to intervene on behalf of the assad regime of course along with iran which had also intervened earlier and remains a key ally of the assad regime on the ground in syria but why syria i mean there's uprisings all over the globe. What's russia's real interest in syria. Well russia's had a long standing interest in syria in. Russia has been involved in syria for decades. Well before charlot during the time of his father hoffa's al- assad and again i the middle east is of course a strategic part of the world and russia has long sought to demonstrate its influence on the ground and again i do think the arab uprisings were an important Happening in terms of the way putin perceived these uprisings as being a threat much more. Broadly a threat. That could eventually even come to russia. Russia continues to drop bombs in opposition held territories in syria. Do you see this continuing for the future. I think we are going to continue to see it. Although again more sporadically. Not the sorts of large scale. Offensives that provoked. Large displacement large flows of syrians fleeing either to other parts of the country or out of the country as refugees. I do think we will continue to see the russians. And of course the assad regime used military force where and how they can to make small gains on the ground but i think the battle lines in syria right now are largely frozen russia's also tried to play a mediator role in syria between the government and opposition rebels. Hasn't made any progress well. This summer saw a lot of violence. In southwestern syria town called dera which is known as the cradle of the revolution and for weeks the russians were attempting to mediate a truce between regime forces and rebels. That were holed up. In certain part of dera they eventually succeeded in negotiating this truce. Just a few weeks ago. And that ended up allowing syrian government forces. Now back into parts of dera for the first time in several years. I think we should be under no illusion that southwestern part of syria remains rest of. It's a very complex mix of forces on the ground there ultimately know what do you think is russia's end game in syria. Well i think. Russia is trying to make the best of what it's been able to achieve in its intervention in syria. I think it's easier both for the role of being able to reestablish itself in the middle east it would like to use syria as a springboard to project its influence elsewhere in the middle east. We've seen for example. Russian influence in places like libya they have shown an interest in developing relations with gulf arab countries. And they've also developed back room or even front room understanding with israel. On how israel comports itself in syria so there's a regional role that russia's seeking to to play. But i also think russia looks at its intervention in syria or is trying to portray it as part of what russian analysts like to talk about as the post westworld a world after what some have called the unipolarity moment of of us dominance not only at least but in the in the world. More broadly. and i think for for some russians or russian analysts moscow views. Its intervention in syria as a success as what they call the first post. West success mona. You could be in a senior adviser at the united states institute of peace in washington where she joined us from. Thanks a lot. Mona thank you so much for having me.

His answers were evasive and unclear. We still don't really understand.

We know that those are many many many thousands more than those who actually were able to get out in this period of time. Finally going forward with the way. The biden administration handled the exit from afghanistan. Go down as a. Us foreign policy failure. Look the whole experiment is going to go down as a us foreign policy failure. That's four straight. Us presidents when the world's greatest military power spent two decades in country and then leaves under conditions like this and the government that was created propped up trained advised and solicited by united states collapses within eleven days. That is a black mark on the united states. It's not attributable to any one person but it is unquestionably a failure. One that will be studied for a long time to come. But the evacuation took place under joe biden's administration and he's the one who pulled the plug. Finally do you think this will him throughout the rest of his presidency. He will be accountable to that now. If history is any guide the american public has been very disinterested by and large in afghanistan for much of the two decades that we've been there so i'm guessing that the united states leaving the conditions under which it did so is not going to be more of a public political issue here in the united states than our presence was for the last two decades and i would think as a matter of politics. It's likely to fade fairly quickly. But as a matter of execution you know. Many presidents have faced foreign policy embarrassments overseas especially in their first years and that ended up being part of the records.

"What they don't have is any outside country saying yes. We acknowledge that you are the legit government of myanmar. But philip on of it thinks the un should say exactly that assuming relations with the national unity government as a government would be a major game. Changer it would mean this. Revolutionary government could get foreign help like health services from the un right now it does treat patients with the help of nurses who defected from government hospitals. But they have to operate in secret since the military took over. Public services have basically collapsed. Many schools are shut. Emergency rooms closed and people are fending for themselves on of it says you. In recognition for the elected government is the way to go the major turning point in this current resistance and would would probably help national unity government and its allies to knock over a struggling to that has no supporting the this shadow government with its armed allies in the borderlands controls about twenty percent of the country the military about seventy percent. The rest is run by other armed groups that haven't picked sides so basically victory for the counter. Coup is by no means certain that is why officials such as linda. Thomas greenfield the united states. U n representative will say things like this. We will show the military that their actions have consequences but so far. The us isn't taking much action. Washington might be afraid to recognize a government that could sputter out in a few months. But here's the thing. Countries that are closer to myanmar's military like china. They don't fully recognize the regime either. Because what if the military can't hold power long-term already. Millions of citizens refuse to pay taxes to the military government and nearly half a million government workers won't show up to work. So is the military really running the country the un special representative for me mar christine trainer. Bergener says not really. She told the un earlier this year that this was only an incomplete attempted coup. I say attendant seems to take over has not stabilized. It would appear to be roundly rejected by the people.

Two thousand four hundred sixty one. American lives lost twenty thousand injuries. Two trillion dollars spent time to end. America's long as senators from the foreign relations committee. Put lincoln on the hot seat during the hearing. Here's republican senator rand paul and how he saw the biden administration's withdrawal from afghanistan never in my worst nightmares who'd anyone or conceive of such colossal incompetence. We're joined now by susan glasser. She's a staff writer at the new yorker where she writes about politics and global affairs. Susan what was your main takeaway from secretary. Lincoln's appearance before the senate panel today. Well this is an administration. That is very unrepentant. They are refusing to say mistakes. Were made even in the execution of the withdrawal secretary blinken just like president biden has been leaning very hard into the decision certainly broadly supported by the american people to withdraw from afghanistan and essentially using that as a broad cover for not really engaging in the specifics of how that withdrawal was carried out. How do you think. Lincoln's testimony is being received by. Us allies abroad specifically the eu. And nato partners you know. I think there were a lot of bruised feelings in brussels and around the nato alliance who had been with the united states for the whole twenty year duration of the us involvement in afghanistan after nine eleven. They felt that they had not really been fully consulted or given a voice in both the overall decision by president biden to end the nato operations there but also in the specifics of the withdrawal so the question is is there going to be lasting damage from this or is it just another example of the us acting in a high handed and more or less unilateral way when it's interests are involved. I'm curious if there's any criticism over the last two days that's really stood out to you for me. The republicans democrats. I do think that it's a sign of these hyper polarized and partisan times that there can't be a serious conversation in which the by administration would be able to acknowledge some of the failures of thinking that led up to this catastrophic collapse of the afghan government and they just have been unwilling to do that. Because the issue has been so supercharged. Until i you know i've been surprised and disappointed by that. I mean the bottom line. Is that the president had states. Joe biden in july eight said that it was extremely improbable that the taliban would have any kind of swift takeover of the country. That's exactly what happened just a few weeks later. How can we be having a serious reasonable conversation about.

The other country is me and it was taken over in a military coup back in february which was followed by a deadly crackdown by the army to governments claim to run myanmar.

"If you're not a traditional burmese buddhist what extent all of those other ethnic groups under pressure so honored ethnic communities most of them are christians and some buddhists wild but the military intensified the fighting against these ethnic communities lately and when they have this fighting against them basically basically target the entire population civilian and rape women. You know kill people and they practice of Arrest and extrajudicial killing has been like daily life experiences of the people in ethic communities in addition to limiting their access to -tarian aid if they become internally dispaced person or laura jeez in addition to the ability to access education health care and other leading. Who's there has been the active practice self obligatory arrest Closely and many forms of violence against the ethnic communities including sexual lennon's the sexual violence has been used as a weapon of the war against ethnic communities for decades. There are several women's organizations including shan women action network women lick off the they came out with a very substantial report on how the military has used these sexual violence against the women rape as a weapon of war for decades and there were no accountability for their practices thus the military continue to use rape as a weapon against the hindu population to terrorize to destroy entire populations so there has been thousands of women who have been raped during the clearance operations in two thousand sixteen and seventeen and they're living witnesses in refugee camps today. Part of the psychology of using rape as a weapon of war to enforce humiliation on the defeated side in this so for the case of rhodesia. It was to humiliate and to terrorize the entire populations. Because we were not actively fighting against the military and it was not a civil war unlike in many other ethnic communities and situations the multiples very clear that they want to humiliate row as a group so that they would never return to Once they are expelled from their land. And you know it's not just that rape to humiliate and terrorize. But they actually very aggressively conducted mutilations. They raped they kill the torture. And the and this practice has been done in front of the family members that whole village openly and in some cases y as they were raping female they were killing their husband and taking their children and putting them into the fire so that parents were more terrorized before they've been killed so it's been very aggressive very horrific form of violations against fellow humans so that level our barrick behavior and ruthlessness. You seem like a remarkably balanced normal person. How did you survive in. Prison is a very young girl. Must've been a time of constant here when we were arrested. Amin i was barely a teenager so it was extremely hot to understand why we were put in jail. I mean as a teenager. I suppose to be going to school and extremely difficult to understand in hot to cope with it for a couple of years but then i decided to no. I cannot just give up at be sad all the time and pry for the release. It's not going to happen. So i decided to just change my mind and stay strong and i feed myself in many many ways i try to spend my time including readings in talking to people and i realized what happened to us was not at fault. It's actually the military dictatorship who's supposed to be accountable for their act against innocent people like us. So i guess that notion empowered me and i was able to stay strong but when i was released i was really expecting. That will have democracy and we'll be able to contribute to building and democratic nations. But instead what i realized was enacted areas. That prosecution has actually intensified in many many incidences in in particular in the case of Is not only that the prosecution human rights violations has had intensified but it's actually rushed to a very adopt and horrific experiences self this genocide which remain unaddressed. Today i was very closely involved in trying to stop the genocide as as ended impunity for the military. We've been documenting what happens to the people very closely even learning and documenting this process. It's not easy because you know one incident astra one incident is. There's no good story at all and it's extremely difficult to mentally coop with as well. I was privileged to be healthy to have more freedom than many of those people who have been targeted for many forms of violations including sexual violence. Since i was released went back to school night was constantly lun into girl myself so i need to use my knowledge my experience and my ability to influence to help others. If we don't do that. Who else is going to help. Who will do this walk and we will be just witness in our fellow. Human being off communities have being killed are depressed often. Human dignity that i felt. It's the sense of duty and responsibility fly fellow communities regardless of my community or not. I cannot sit and watch to let this have. And i need to take actions. And that's how. I think feeling of privilege and enjoying freedom empowered me bother to take actions. The evolution of me on more may be about to begin. Just have a sense. That time is running out. We don't know how long it will be but we very committed to win this fight and to really change the country to bring freedom democracy equality and peace in my.

"John you talked about over eight hundred people dying in the wake of these protests yet somehow people in myanmar are still optimistic. Why Because i think this is something where they feel like. There's nothing really to lose. Which is maybe doesn't sound very optimistic. But there is this idea of everybody is coming together to defeat a common enemy which is right now the myanmar military and this idea that they could achieve or create. Something that has never been created before in myanmar. And i do think there is the sense of like well else. Can we do. And so there really is no other option but to sort of embrace this very uncertain future and push forward and at the same time there are also some really remarkable and positive developments. I would say you know. Mars very ethnically diverse country but ethnic and religious minorities have often faced discrimination racism and sometimes downright brutality at the hands of the myanmar government and the myanmar military. And you're seeing a real reckoning with that in myanmar right now as it is also plotting its future and it's really kind of remarkable to see. Have we ever seen anything like this. Before where you have various ethnic groups coming together working towards a common cause in myanmar yet. We actually have. Which is what makes this also very interesting. So in the past democracy protests that are seen most notably in the late nineteen eighties and early nineties where students led a pro democracy movement. The military kinda followed a similar playbook where it began to crack down and many of these students and protestors fled to sort of the borderlands of and which are often controlled in some cases by ethnic armed organizations many of which had been fighting the myanmar government our military and those ethnic organizations and their civil arms took in those protesters and sort of gave them shelter and protection but also kind of helped train them and at the same time that that happened. When myanmar's were to became a quasi democracy a lot of those ethnic groups were not included in the conversation or the development of democracy. But we're seeing the same thing happened now where many of these protesters and these students and these professionals who are protesting against the military are now also feeling that they're unsafe that they're under attack from the military and so they're seeking haven in these areas many of which are controlled by these ethnic armed organizations. Where they're getting food and shelter and they're also in some cases learning how to fight. They're they're learning how to use weapons. They're preparing for possible warfare. And so you see this alliance which is born out of this joint opposition to the our military and it is somewhat born out of necessity but there's also again this hope for creating a more democratic and equal future for myanmar. Can you talk about some of these groups that are on the border regions of myanmar. That have basically been in conflict with the military for a long time and are now taking in some of these protesters. Yes oh for example in the caution state. There's been an insurgent movement that's been at war with the myanmar military on and off for decades of fighting for their independence chin or a very strong rebel group own hierarchy and their own army. They present quite formidable opposition to the ma'am authorities. There's also the karen people who've basically been at civil war since the creation of the country. We have fought against them for so many years. So we know that myanmar will not give us equality easily now only the karen but other ethnicities too so we have to fight for rights but if we cannot make peace in our time it will be up to the next generation and so those places to it's worth keeping in mind or under attack by the military. These are not exactly safe havens. They are being bombed and shelled and many people civilians are being displaced on some for example across the border in thailand. So these are very precarious places right. Now they're not exactly safe but they feel safer for people who are in opposition to the military because you have you know like minded people again who are all united for this common. Cause what is the main reason. These groups give for fighting for independence. Are they frustrated. With the amount of power the military has and is a slept pro democracy effort or is it something else. A lot of the ethnic armed organizations each have sort of specific goals or aims. Many of them are fighting for greater autonomy or independence on but they're also just fighting for their survival. You know some of these groups have been brutalized and have been discriminated against and so they're sort of standing up for their own interests in what is really happening or what has happened because of the the coup in myanmar is that a lot of the burmese majority who were removed from these armed struggles on. Who didn't even really understand them. Or maybe thought these ethnic groups were sort of out to advance their own interests now very much realize that these ethnic groups are part of military's pattern of of brutality. And so you know it's sort of this idea of like oh you know now. They're coming for me and so you're seeing this. Recognition of what many of these ethnic minorities and religious minorities have gone through in me and mar and that realization is kind of dawning on the broader population. Which is why you're seeing this unity. Hi this is. Nissan louis and activists and co founder of the free range a collision in network ruin the activists and friend of hinduja. I am based in jumpy.

"It's today explained. I'm halima sitting in for sean ramos firm protesters and military in myanmar have been mired in a bloody conflict for months. It all started back in february. When people took to the streets to protest a military coup the political party led by aung. San suu cheat. The national league for democracy won parliamentary elections but the military claimed fraud and detained top l. d. leaders since then things have only escalated at the beginning. We didn't feel like Lights were being threatened. A stock warning from the un special envoy on myanmar quote. A bloodbath is imminent. But i think we've got the message loud and clear by the end of march today on the show we'll hear from people who've been resisting myanmar's military and we'll find out why this might mark a turning point for a country that has spent most of its history under military rule. John kirby your foreign and national security reporter for vox dot com and we just heard from someone in myanmar who described violent military crackdowns on protesters. How did things get so bad after. The coup thousands and thousands of people in me amar took to the streets for these massive protests just hundreds of thousands of people walking through communities and professions into a remarkably coordinated show of opposition. They're protesting in big cities like gang on they're also protesting in different corners of the country. There is a real massive outpouring of support for unsung succi and opposition to the military takeover. People are wearing red. They are holding up their fingers in this three finger salute which is an image to the hunger games there are professionals and students who are leading these protests the force of the protests and the size of the protests were even somewhat unexpected. You know. I had talked to some folks before who had a pretty dismal view about the pro democracy movement in myanmar but These young people these professionals. I mean the protests included a huge cross section of people and a real groundswell of support and movement of opposition against the coup and that kind of massive peaceful protest movement continues but as the weeks. Ground on things take darker. Turn a site. The anti coup protest movement never wanted to see the death of a protester march. Twenty seventh was the bloodiest day to date. More than one hundred people were killed today. The us ambassador to myanmar said security forces are murdering civilians. There's last protests that went to was a flash protests that happened was the army date and that protests involved a lot more running and hiding regrouping compared to back in february and since then it has only gotten worse. More than eight hundred people have died. According to figures at the hands of the military and more than four thousand have been either charged or detained. What happens in detention. You know there's a lot of allegations of of torture and abusive practices on beyond that and right now. There's a sense of this military conducting the reign of terror forces report of the opened fire on mourners at the funeral of the students. Who amongst those killed there are reports of people now becoming fearful of you know who to talk to and whom to trust because people are reporting in secret to the police. The military is using people that they've killed according to reports to kind of terrorize communities and at the same time communities are trying to build up their kind of defenses against the military. I'm trying to fortify neighborhoods but there is a lot of fear. There is a lot of mistrust you know. I talked to one protester who used a a student who basically said know when she goes out into the street. She makes sure that she never has anything on her phone. Because if anybody sees her organizing or coordinating a protests. She doesn't know what will happen to her. The peaceful protests have kind of morphed into something a little bit closer to a resistance movement kind of an acknowledgement that. Maybe the the peaceful protest won't be enough to kind of fight this military at the same time. The economy is struggling and the de factor civilian leader on song cheever remains in prison on trumped up charges mr chase facing charges that range from illegally possessing walkie-talkie radios to violating state secrets laws. The country seems on the brink of a possible civil war or revolution so the public is largely angry with the military. But where does the previous government stand on this. Are they trying to retake power. Are they involved in this resistance. Some other members of the l. d. have kind of taken to form their own political party in kind of a government in exile which has been known as the national unity government and they are fighting for international recognition. And they're also trying to establish kind of people's defense force to possibly take on the military and their goal at least one of the goals that they've stated to eventually kind of form or become the new democratic government of myanmar who is still supporting the military if anyone the military i mean i am sure Listeners have heard that in myanmar there is a real kind of segregation between the military and the rest of the general public and the military kind of socialize in their own circles. They have their own media. And so it's a very very insular institution and so there is a lot of support there. But outside of the military among the general population there really seems to be this growing sort of anti military sentiment that wherever you stood on the political spectrum wherever you stood in terms of your religion or ethnic background there is kind of a growing sentiment of. We're all in this together against the military. We're talking about a country that has spent most of its sixty year. History under military rule and while protesters are hoping for the best in want this to lead to revolution. What are the chances this could turn into civil war instead. Yeah i mean. I think there's just so many question marks that it's really hard to predict right now and i think you know the discussions of the civil war are serious but at the same time. It's important to recognize that me mar in many ways has been at civil war for the entire course of its history. The differences that many of these civil wars took place on the borderlands of myanmar with ethnic armed organizations who've been fighting with the military on and off for decades and so me and has never fully been at peace. What is different now. Is that the civil war. Become something that engulfs the entire country and includes a population and people who may have not been necessarily involved in fighting the government before but it is sort of important to keep that in. Mind when we talk about me and more that this country has not really known piece in many ways when it comes to a revolution i mean. I've talked to many protesters. Also members of ethnic armed groups who really see themselves as embracing a kind of mission to bring democracy to me amar and truly believe that they can win and that they will try to win at all costs to establish a democracy.

"To get to the point that it's willing to accept that evidence as unrebutted in there for a true for purposes of deciding to legal issue. So it'll be if myanmar there's a lot of hits here but if myanmar doesn't appear than there will be the question to what extent is the icy j. willing to draw adverse inferences based on the fact that mars is not responding to the evidence and arguments that the gambia's putting forward sank. Suci was actually myanmar's agent in this case. I think that's the right terminology in the icj but they can change agent if they wanted to. Yes thinkers any obstacle to that the government would just need to communicate to registry of the court that an agent is being replaced by another agent. Of course that happens other times for less dramatic reasons than a than a military coup. The other question. I think it relates to whether myanmar will continue to participate in the case. Actually there are two points that would make one under the provisional measures order from january two thousand twenty myanmar has this periodic reporting requirement. So they're supposed to be sending reports now every six months to the is c. J. about what they're doing to implement the measures that were imposed on myanmar and those measures basically told me on mar to not engage in conduct. That would amount to violations of genocide convention not terribly specific and also not to engage in conduct and in fact to take active measures to prevent the destruction of evidence relates to the claims in the case and two of these reports have been submitted so far confidential so we don't know exactly what they say and i have made arguments elsewhere that they should not be confidential that it would be beneficial on several fronts for them to be made publicly available But it's so this is an open question woman. Mark continued to participate in the case in that way will they submit their next periodic report and then different question so we know on succi is extremely unlikely to be part of the team going forward if me and mark continues with the case it's unthinkable and there may be other members who were on people who were heavily involved in the case like on g are now in detention or no longer in any position of authority. I think another interesting question. Though is whether myanmar's outside legal counsel will want to continue representing myanmar under these circumstances and that in particular i think question for professor william shave this genocide expert and was really lead counsel from mar the provisional measures face professor it has been harshly criticized for taking on this role for accepting men mar as a client. I think the issue is maybe not so black and white as a matter of principle. I think it's a good thing for states. Even states accused of horrific actions to be represented by highly capable legal counsel..
"myanmar" Discussed on KCRW
"Go Slash black freedom. It's 8 22. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm the wheel King. Good Morning, Me and Mars Military ruled that country for almost 50 years in 2015, a Democratic election brought on song Souci, who'd peacefully fought against military rule to power and then this week, the military took power back in a coup. And Souci has been detained. Aaron Connolly is an analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. He's on the line with us from Singapore. Good morning, Aaron. Good morning. Well, were there any warning signs this coup was coming about a week ago, The military started to make threats that if the civilian government didn't take its issues, with November election for which it had provided no evidence More seriously than it would consider taking power. It seemed to step back from that threat on a couple of occasions, and then on Monday morning, it arrested key civilian leaders. But it was really only about a week ago that most people in Myanmar and most Myanmar specialists overseas started to believe that the military was serious about taking back power. What is the military claiming happened in this election? They claim that there were irregularities with voter lists in the election, particularly in ethnic areas, and that if the election voter lists were scrutinized more closely than that, they would have had a chance of winning more seats in the national legislature. But again they haven't provided any evidence for those claims. Okay, So you're skeptical of the claim that there was something wrong with the election. What's the relationship between Souci and the generals who now detain her? It's been a touchy relationship over time. Of course, they detained her for many years from 1990 until 2011 releasing her on a couple of occasions. But then she appeared to be trying to build a more solid relationship with them. After she took power in 2016, at least control over the civilian government military maintain control over the three key ministries, the Ministry of Defense Home Affairs Order affairs and also all the security forces. At times, she appeared to be trying to build a working relationship with them. But ultimately that foundered when they refused to respect her ambitions, particularly to become president, which they had outlawed under the Constitution that they wrote in 2008. Okay, so she lost the General's has she also lost the civilians? What, to ordinary people there. Think of her Well. She won the last election. Her party that nationally for democracy, won the last election in November in a landslide. She remains incredibly popular in Myanmar. And that's likely to continue. There's no change to that. What do you envision will happen over the next couple of days and weeks? Will there be any kind of push within the country or outside the country to release her to end the could give power back to people have been democratically elected? It's still really unclear. There was one statement that was released on one of her Facebook pages yesterday that suggested that before she was detained, she had called people out onto the streets. But then there were other members of her party. You said that that statement was inauthentic. There are some who would prefer to see street demonstrations against this. They believe that that might reverse the result of this coup. On the other hand, there are those who remember what happened in 1988 when people came out onto the streets following a military coup, then on hundreds, possibly thousands of people died in the violence. After the military sought to suppress those demonstrations. Myanmar was ruled by the military for decades. Is there a fear that the country could be headed back in that direction? Yeah, Absolutely. The military says that it's only going to take back power for one year and then it's going to hold elections and return power to a civilian government. But it might not necessarily adhere to that timeline. It believes that if it removes on since achieve from politics that it could begin to win elections again, But it's not really clear that that's the case and it's not clear that people will cooperate. Participate in a semi democratic system that excludes on San Souci, or the National League from Democracy. What are the implications outside of Myanmar in Southeast Asia more broadly well yesterday, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which is the regional block in this region. I'm in Singapore issued a statement calling for return to what they said was normalcy and number of Southeast Asian diplomats have said to me on background that, but they're looking for his return to the status quo as of Sunday evening, That's a relatively strong statement for as Ian And the U. N Security Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on the situation later today. The UK is currently in the presidency of the Security Council and has tended to focus on me and Mara issues when it's held the presidency. So I would anticipate quite a bit of international pressure both from within the region and around the globe on the military to at the very least, truncate the period in which it intends to hold power and perhaps to shape the nature of the government that would follow after the military hands back power.
