This is the August 3, 2020 hearing on "Update on the Rohingya Crisis," held before the House Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific and Nonproliferation of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Ami Bera: "Later this month will mark 3 years since the Tatmadaw, the Burmese military, began what they called clearance operations against the Rohingya in the Rakhine State. In reality, what we witnessed was ethnic cleansing and what should be considered a genocide. According to the U.N. Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar, what took place was actually the killing of thousands of Rohingya civilians, as well as forced disappearances, mass gang rapes, and the burning of villages in the hundreds. [...] What the hearing will look at, you know, it is that, clear 3 years later, Burma is still not respecting the basic human rights of the Rohingya. Three years later, the victims in Burma and Bangladesh and the international community are still dealing with the consequences. That is what this hearing will examine." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Eric Schwartz, Wai Wai Nu, Allyson Neville, and Olivia Enos.
