1. On behalf of the citizens and press and media families of Myanmar, the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, thankfully acknowledge the resolution adopted by the European Parliament titled as “Crackdown on media freedom in Myanmar and the cases of Htet Htet Khine, Sithu Aung Myint and Nyein Nyein Aye” on 6 October 2022.
2. The words “strongly condemning the military junta’s violent and illegitimate rule in Myanmar” included in the resolution would not make prevention the systematic killings, unlawful arrests and detention, fighting with unlimited and indiscriminate armed clashes and airstrikes by the terrorist military led by mass murderer Min Aung Hlaing. We remind the world that the concreted punishments in time should be taken in urgency and necessity in accordance with international laws for the military junta’s war crimes against Myanmar people.
3. We reaffirm MEP’s call to drop all politically motivated charges against the press and media community, and unconditionally release journalists who have been unjustly-detained. Such unlawful actions on press and media personnel are their planned actions to continue inhumane human rights violations and war crimes and to hide their actions. At the same time, the military is making efforts to distribute disinformation to the international and Myanmar people in order to hold state power.
4. We hope to make forcible urging of European Parliament to military junta to release unconditionally President U Win Myint, State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and all others in detentions. The people of Myanmar gravely concern about further execution of political prisoners and health condition of Democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi because the junta moved her to the prison as a political blow.
5. The Call of MEPs for an immediate end to the unlawful and illegal state of emergency, and then to return power to the civilian government together with opening parliament with the participation of all elected parliamentarians will not be an effective urge for military junta who have a hunger for power and took over by arms. Therefore, their efforts to hold sham election that aims to control power with another way must be condemned and prevented.
6. Myanmar population including media workers are facing with military offensive abuses of arbitrary arrests, torture, murder, sexual violence, burning homes every day. The international should protect them by preventive measures on serious human rights violations of brutal military and we urge all global states to impose economic sanctions and arms embargos.
7. We also appreciate for adopting a resolution by MEPs to recognize the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw and the National Unity Government in order to help solving conflict and the people of Myanmar with the right way. We now re-call on the international parliaments to adopt same resolution and to urge your governments to recognize officially and cooperate practically with us.
8. We, the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, reaffirm our commitment to restore peace, stablity and democracy in Myanmar and, deeply urge local revolutionary forces, international governments, parliaments, organizations including the United Nations, the European Union and the ASEAN to support the efforts of Myanmar citizens to restore democracy by cooperating with us.
