Which EU members are secretly training the Burmese military?
When EU members discussed their response to the Rohingya crisis, they claimed they were prohibiting training and co-operation with the military.
But in fact they decided NOT to stop all EU members providing training to the Burmese military, despite the overwhelming evidence of them committing war crimes, crimes against humanity and even possibly genocide.
Instead, the EU left a loophole saying future training will mainly focus on democratic principles and human rights. That’s just what the British government said when it started providing training to the military. After a year-long freedom of information battle we forced the British government to admit that on a 60 hour training course, only one hour was on human rights. Even that hour was later dropped.
