International community must assist in the re-engineering of justice institutions

An Oral Statement to the 31st Session of the UN Human Rights Council from the Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) on Myanmar’s UPR Outcomes. Due to time constraints in Council proceedings, the following Oral Statement could not be presented at the Council. The Statement is now being shared to inform the wider audience in Myanmar and across the world about the ALRC's campaign on institutional transformation in Myanmar.

Mr. President.

The Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) notes that the adoption of UPR Outcomes on Myanmar coincides with the long-cherished struggles for democracy in Myanmar coming to fruition. The flowering of democracy in Myanmar is proof that people's desire for democracy will succeed military repression; it is a lesson for Myanmar's neighbours.

The ALRC and its partners are indebted to the global human rights community, for their care and attention to the people of Myanmar. Now that it is possible to openly work on equality before law, dignity, and freedom in Myanmar, we encourage them to spend time and resources to gain nuanced knowledge on the challenges faced by Myanmar’s people and institutions, rather than push pre-packaged development programmes, which have failed in countries like Cambodia.
