Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal: State Crimes Allegedly Committed in Myanmar against the Rohingyas, Kachins and Other Groups
JUSTICE, 13 November 2017

18-22 Sep 2017, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – The PPT moved to inquire into the situation consistent with its view that genocide prevention is also a matter for the peoples of the world to be aware of and thence to demand action.
That it is now known that a Report by a UN commissioned expert who said the situation in Myanmar demanded urgent action to prevent a catastrophe was ignored and even suppressed, makes clear that peoples’ organisations such as the PPT, independent from states and from INGOs, have an important role to play in bringing a judicial spotlight to bear, albeit without power of enforcement, standing alongside the victims and letting their voices be heard in the unfulfilled task of preventing such future human tragedies so that we can finally say with confidence: Never again.
