UN chief Antonio Guterres on Monday spoke out in opposition to the “brutal force” utilized by these behind Myanmar’s coup and urged the navy to right away halt the repression and launch prisoners.
“Today, I call on the Myanmar military to stop the repression immediately. Release the prisoners. End the violence. Respect human rights, and the will of the people expressed in recent elections,” Guterres instructed the UN Human Rights Council in a pre-recorded video message.
