Douglas Alexander MP, Labour's Shadow Foreign Secretary, has called on the Government to work with other EU members to campaign for a United Nations Commission of Inquiry into accusations of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma:


“The Burmese Government must end the continuing grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, including the targeting of civilians in conflict areas


“The international community has been strong in condemning the repeated abuses of human rights in Burma.  But even at this late hour Britain must work to seek international agreement to establish a UN Commission of Inquiry into accusations of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma.


“In Brussels and New York, British diplomats can and must make every effort to win justice for the victims of human rights abuses in Burma.”
