Ref: Charges against the Myanmar State for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity against the Kachin People of Northern Burma

Dear Sir,

The Myanmar State and its armed forces are guilty of carrying out War Crimes and CrimesAgainst Humanity against the Kachin people of Northern Myanmar or Burma.

These criminal acts include grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions such as the deliberatetargeting of civilians by military forces, rape and other forms of sexual violence as a weapon ofwar, extrajudicial executions, arbitrary detention, torture, enslaving, destroying churches andrestrictions on the provision of humanitarian assistance to more than 120,000 internallydisplaced civilians. Such heinous violations have been the systematic and deliberate policy ofsuccessive Myanmar Governments and amount to War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.

Therefore, we, the Kachin National Organisation here officially submit charges against theMyanmar State and its armed forces for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.
