HURFOM: Across the first two weeks of November 2022, the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) has already documented cases of murder, arbitrary arrests, and abductions. The first of our report on human rights violations by the junta over the last fourteen days can be viewed on a map indicating the abuse, and the location in Southeastern Burma where it took place. Civilians of all ages continue to be targeted by the military junta. The lack of accountability has only emboldened them to commit further acts of atrocity with impunity.

HURFOM: By the end of October 2022, the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM), observed another period of unrelenting offensives. Among our monthly key findings, over 15 000 people were newly displaced across Mon State, Karen State, and Tanintharyi region target areas. In addition to over 70 people arrested, 47 were detained, 45 were injured, and nearly 20 civilian deaths. The attacks are widespread, systematic, and indicative of the Burma Army’s emboldening sense of impunity. Without urgent and immediate international action, the people of Burma will continue to wait amid significant hurdles to their safety and well-being that are worsening daily.

Military impunity continues in target areas of the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) including Mon State, Karen State and Tanintharyi region. Southeastern Burma has been overwhelmed by the junta’s expanding presence and ongoing disregard for human rights. Innocent people are routinely being denied their fundamental rights as the regime targets them on unproven suspicions and accusations of supporting the thriving opposition movements across the country. Despite the junta’s attempts to terrorize the population into submission, civilians refuse to adhere to life under military rule and have maintained their calls for international intervention and advocacy.

There are many challenges that civilians in Southeastern Burma are facing amid worsening military junta offensives. Those unlawfully detained are being forced to pay bribes as the economy continues to unravel. Inflation has made the cost of living nearly impossible for some households. And yet – the junta is demanding large sums for the release of innocent civilians. Over the last week, the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) documented four cases of the junta demanding ransoms to free family members in Ye, Mon State. The situation is at a crossroads and is showing no signs of improving.

Excessive violence across the second week of September 2022 in Southeastern Burma saw dozens more victims subject to the junta’s brutal violence, and draconian polices which have seen hundreds behind prison bars for crimes they are not guilty of. The junta-backed court imposed orders on about (42) political prisoners in Dawei Prison over the last six months, according to the sources from Dawei Political Prisoners Network. About 30 are still facing trial. Most of those imprisoned in Dawei have been charged under section 505 A and B of the Panel Code.

Analysis
As the end of August 2022 came to an end, the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) was alarmed by several new human rights trends in Southeastern Burma. Among them, there has been a notable increase in children being targeted by the military junta. They’ve been deprived of their basic needs including medical attention, food, education, and the right to live safely. As a result, the numbers of displaced children who are suffering from malnutrition are worrisome.
