star this property answer text <p>We are greatly concerned by the discovery of mass graves in Inn Din village and note the acknowledgement by the Burmese military of their responsibility.</p><p>This is the first instance of the Burmese military admitting to wrongdoing in the violence in Rakhine state that has taken place since 25 August 2017. The Burmese military has committed to take action and we strongly urge them to follow an independent, due legal process and be transparent about the prosecution of the perpetrators. The Burmese authorities should also condemn such extrajudicial acts unequivocally. These cases underline the need for a full, credible and independent investigation into all reports of violence, including those reported in Kanyin Tan.</p> more like this
