On November 1, the Security Force Monitor (SFM) research group, which investigates the activities of security forces around the world under the Human Rights Institute of Columbia University Law School in the United States, released the 'Under Whose command?' A research report has been published.

In that report, it is stated that most of the senior officers of the Myanmar army are responsible for various human rights violations and crimes committed by the Myanmar army from 2011 to 20-23 after the military coup led by General Min Aung Hlaing.

The person who committed the most severe human rights violations was the Deputy Prime Minister of the Military Council. Former Minister of Defense General Mya Tun Oo

According to the research team's findings, out of 79 senior leaders of the Myanmar military, most are responsible for war crimes allegedly committed by the Myanmar military.

64 percent or 51 of the senior officers of the Burmese army were killed by the forces under them between March 30, 2011 and March 30, 2023. blasphemy The research group found that 54 percent, or 28, of the 51 senior officers found responsible for allegations of torture and cover-up were promoted after their subordinates committed crimes.

Of the 51 senior officers responsible for these crimes, nine have not been promoted, three are expected to be promoted in the future, and 11 have yet to be confirmed.

Among the Burmese military leaders, the one who committed the most severe human rights violations was the Deputy Prime Minister of the Military Council. Former Defense Minister General Mya Tun Oo is also said by the SFM Research Group.

These findings are based on the study and investigation of various human rights violations committed by the Burmese military against protest activists and civilians during the 12-year period from the time military leader General Min Aung Hlaing took office as the Chief of Staff until March of this year.

During these 12 years, the deployment of Myanmar military forces in various states and regions of Myanmar has been tracked and investigated, who are the battalion commanders of these forces and the crimes alleged to have been committed by these forces, according to a statement issued by SFM.

This research findings reveal one of the missing links in who is responsible for the crimes committed by the Myanmar military.

"This shows that these injustices were not committed by low-ranking soldiers and disobedient units of the Burmese army," said Tony Wilson, head of the SFM Research Group.

SFM's report also examines the backgrounds of Myanmar army battalion commanders and details the crimes they are accused of committing with the forces under their command. The SFM team said they intend to keep the research findings on record to be used in future justice trials.

Columbia University's SFM research group has studied various crimes committed by security forces around the world, and is also the group that uncovered the United States' behind-the-scenes support in the bombing of Yemen by multinational groups led by Saudi Arabia.

The findings of the SFM team's report were reported by the international press, and The Guardian newspaper tried to get a response from the military council officials regarding these findings, but said that there was no response.
