Myanmar: Amnesty International has said that the Myanmar military is using weapons that are used against its enemies in the war zone to suppress demonstrations against them. Significantly, after the country’s collapse, thousands of people have protested in the streets protesting the action of the army, which is still going on. The military is using Lethal Weapons on the protesters to suppress them.
After Amnesty, it has been confirmed that they had seen about 50 videos of demonstrations on the streets of Myanmar and the techniques being adopted to stop them. At the same time, the United Nations demanded that around 60 protesters have been killed at the hands of the army during these demonstrations. On behalf of Amnesty, it is said that the military is not withdrawing from the extrajudicial execution during this period. Reuters tried to talk to the military regime’s spokesperson but failed.
The Myanmar army is saying that she is exercising complete restraint on the protesters. Let me tell you that the head of the Myanmar army overthrew the democratic government of the country on February 1 and took power into its own hands. Since then, all the leaders, including the country’s President Aung Sang Suu Kyi, were taken into custody.
All the world’s international organizations are demanding that the old order be restored in the country by the immediate release of these leaders. On behalf of the army, it is being said that Suu Kyi’s party was rigged in the November 2020 election, due to which he has been detained. Earlier it was also told by the army that it was the country’s need to do so.
On behalf of Amnesty, it has been said that the type of large weapons the army is using on the protesters are used in the war zone. Apart from this, the military has also been accused by Amnesty of committing atrocities on minorities, especially Rohingyas. John Mariner, director of Amnesty International, says that the decision has not been taken thoughtfully but reflects a low mentality. It is against humanity to do so. The army is killing people openly and is trying to get it right.
On behalf of Amnesty, it has been said that the army is using other types of assault rifles, including machine guns, sniper rifles, light machine guns, on the protesters. Amnesty has appealed to the Myanmar army to stop all this immediately. On behalf of The Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, it has been said that the military has taken into custody about 2000 people.
