That this House is shocked by recent video footage showing the Myanmar police standing by or joining in brutal attacks on members of the Muslim Rohingya community in Myanmar; condemns the government of Myanmar over its treatment of the Rohingya Muslim minority; is deeply concerned that the Government has dismissed a United Nations report calling for urgent action to protect tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees this monsoon season; notes that over 120,000 Rohingyas are currently in tented refugee camps which are likely to flood; further notes that the Myanmar administration has reaffirmed that the Rohingyas will not be granted citizenship despite UN pressure; and calls on the Government to bring what pressure it can on Myanmar to protect this persecuted minority and to give them full citizenship rights.
