Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar A/70/412

The 6 October 2015 report by the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Myanmar, Yanghee Lee, provides an overview of the main human rights developments in Burma/Myanmar since the Special Rapporteur's report to the Human Rights Council in March 2015. It sets out key issues and priorities that need to be addressed to further the reforms in the area of human rights prior to the November elections and beyond, including the situation of the Rohingya. In her report, the Special Rapporteur "finds no major improvement in the human rights concerns previously highlighted, in particular the long-standing and institutionalized discrimination against the Rohingya community."
