Crimes and Atrocities Committed by the SAC Troops Against the Chin People (Feb 1, 2021 – Feb 1, 2022)

February 1, 2022, marked the first anniversary of the military coup d’état in Myanmar, which brought the State Administrative Council (SAC) to power.

Myanmar’s military had carried out crimes and atrocities, crimes against humanity, and gross human rights abuses against the country’s ethnic minorities for decades under previous military rule. Since the coup of February 1, 2021, it is evident that the SAC troops have been openly committing similar crimes and gross human rights abuses not only in Chin State, but across Myanmar, using similar tactics of previous rulers.
