Categorised under the topics of Asia, Human rights and International law.

That this House condemns ongoing crimes against humanity in Burma, whereby the dictatorship systematically commits crimes against civilians including torture, rape of ethnic women, systematic sexual violence, slavery, murder, mass imprisonment, forced labour, persecution of dissidents, conscription of child soldiers and forced relocation; further expresses deep concern that the dictatorship refused to allow humanitarian assistance to survivors of Cyclone Nargis; welcomes the European Parliament Resolution of 22nd May 2008 calling for the dictatorship to be referred to the International Criminal Court; and calls on the British Government to use its membership of the United Nations Security Council to secure support for the Council to refer the situation in Burma to the International Criminal Court.

This motion has been signed by a total of 63 MPs.
