UN Rapporteur says much more to be done on human rights in Myanmar

UN Rapporteur says much more to be done on human rights in Myanmar

The United Nations special rapporteur on Myanmar, Tomás Ojea Quintana, has presented his final report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Quintana is to be replaced at the end of the month. He has visited Myanmar nine times since his mandate began in 2008. In that time, the country has held elections - in 2011 - and has begun to implement reforms. Quintana highlighted improvements in some areas, but said a lot remains to be done in Myanmar to meet UN Human Rights standards. Ian Holliday, a Myanmar specialist from Hong Kong, says there is progress, but not for Rohingya Muslims.
