Question of: Human Rights in Myanmar

Submitted by: Lithuania

Taking into consideration laws and statues that forbid slavery of any kind which include but are not limited to General Conference of the International Labour Organisation on 28 June 1930,

Deeply concerned that 700,000 citizens of all ages are forced into manual labour by the Military Government of Myanmar in contradiction to the rules laid out by the above organisation,

Alarmed that citizens are tortured if they refuse to work in this forced labour,

Deeply disturbed by reports of sexual violence used for controlling population,

Aware of the fact that all national newspapers and broadcasts are filtered through the government for censorship,

    1. personnel to help with construction work,
