Former UN Experts Launch Independent “Special Advisory Council for Myanmar”

One month after the military coup, three international experts on Myanmar have joined forces in a new independent group to support the peoples of Myanmar in their fight for human rights, democracy, peace, justice and accountability.

The Special Advisory Council for Myanmar, or SAC-M, has been formed to provide an international platform for civil society organisations, human rights defenders and activists in Myanmar, and other experts on Myanmar, to ensure their voices are heard by key stakeholders and decision-makers. The SAC-M’s founding members are Yanghee Lee, former UN Special Rapporteur on Myanmar, Marzuki Darusman, former chair of the UN Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar and Chris Sidoti, former member of the UN Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar.

The SAC-M will hold a press conference on Thursday, 04 March at 15:00 (Bangkok GMT+7) to introduce their work and address the urgent and ongoing crisis. Please register through the following link:
