Resolution 77/227 (Myanmar/Burma) A/RES/77/227

15 December 2022

On 15 December 2022 the UN General Assembly passed Resolution 77/227 on the situation of human rights of Rohingya Muslims and other minorities in Myanmar (Burma). The resolution condemns all violations and abuses of human rights against civilians, including Rohingya Muslims and other minorities in Myanmar, including before and following the declaration of the state of emergency on 1 February 2021 and its later extension. The resolution emphasizes the importance of conducting international, independent, fair and transparent investigations into the most serious human rights violations and of holding accountable all those responsible for brutal acts and crimes against all persons in order to deliver justice to victims, including through the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. The resolution also recalls that States have the primary responsibility to respect, protect and fulfill human rights, and reiterates the urgent call upon Myanmar or Myanmar Military, where applicable, “to protect all persons and communities, in line with international humanitarian law and human rights law, including the Rohingya Muslims and other minorities.”
