Myanmar denies entry of UN special rapporteur

Myanmar denies entry of UN special rapporteur. A United Nations human rights investigator Yanghee Lee has disclosed that she had been barred from visiting Myanmar to assess the human rights of minority Rohingya Muslims there.

UN special rapporteur Yanghee Lee on Wednesday released a statement saying the declaration of non-cooperation with her mandate can only be viewed as a strong indication that there must be something terrible happening in Rakhine state.

Lee condemned Myanmar’s government, saying she is puzzled and disappointed by the decision. Lee was scheduled to visit the western state of Rakhine next month, where security forces have been accused of abusing the human rights of Rohingya Muslims.
