Documents and testimony obtained by Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit expose the inner workings of the Myanmar regime, providing “strong evidence” of genocide against the Rohingya minority.
Exclusive evidence reveals the government has been triggering communal violence for political gain by inciting anti-Muslim riots, using hate speech to stoke fear among the Myanmarese about Muslims, and offering money to hardline Buddhist groups who threw their support behind the leadership.
This eight-month investigation draws on a range of interviews with former and current military and intelligence officials, internally displaced people and advocacy groups.
The 48-minute documentary draws on documents from the Myanmar military, an unpublished United Nations report and other government paperwork, all presented here.
Assessed by Yale University Law School and the International State Crime Initiative at Queen Mary University of London, they constitute “strong evidence” of a state-led genocide.
Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit does not report the news. It makes the news. We reveal secrets and expose truths surrounded by silence.
The unit serves the public interest by uncovering malfeasance, wrongdoing and abuses of power.
