Min Aung Hlaing

Date of birth: 3 July 1956

Place of birth: Tavoy, Myanmar/Burma

Nationality: Myanmar

National Identification number: 12/SAKHANA(N)020199

Gender: male

Min Aung Hlaing has been the Commander-in-Chief of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw) since 2011. He is Chairman of the State Administration Council (SAC) and member of the National Defence and Security Council (NDSC). Min Aung Hlaing declared himself as ‘Prime Minister’ on 1 August 2021. On 1 February 2021, the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw), led by Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, staged a coup in Myanmar/Burma by setting aside the results of the elections held on 8 November 2020 and by overthrowing the democratically elected government. As part of the coup, Vice-President Myint Swe, functioning as Acting President, declared a state of emergency on 1 February 2021 and transferred the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the State to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. On 2 February 2021, the SAC was established to exercise those powers, preventing the democratically elected government from fulfilling its mandate. On 31 January 2022, upon the request of Min Aung Hlaing, the NDSC formally extended the state of emergency until 31 July 2022.

By concentrating all powers and as Chairman of the SAC, Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing has been directly involved in and responsible for decision-making concerning state functions and is therefore responsible for undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma. Additionally, the SAC adopted decisions restricting the rights to freedom of expression, including access to information, and peaceful assembly. The military forces and authorities operating under the control of the SAC have committed serious human rights violations since 1 February 2021, killing civilian and unarmed protestors, restricting freedom of assembly and of expression, including by restricting internet access, and through arbitrary arrests and detention of opposition leaders and opponents of the coup. As Chairman of the SAC, Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing is directly responsible for those repressive decisions and for serious human rights violations.

In 2018, the UN as well as international civil society organisations reported gross human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in Kachin, Rakhine and Shan States against the Rohingya population by the military and police forces since 2011 and concluded that many of those violations amount to the gravest crimes under international law. As Commander-in-Chief of the Tatmadaw since 2011, Min Aung Hlaing is directly responsible for those serious violations and abuses against the Rohingya population.

Myint Swe

Date of birth: 24 May 1951

Nationality: Myanmar

Gender: male

Lieutenant General Myint Swe is a member of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw) and was the Tatmadaw-appointed Vice-President until 1 February 2021. On that date, Myint Swe participated in a National Defence and Security Council (NDSC) meeting with other Tatmadaw members. The NDSC meeting was unconstitutional as it did not include its civilian members. During that meeting, Myint Swe was declared Acting President. Myint Swe then declared a state of emergency and handed over legislative, executive and judicial powers of the State to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. The procedure for declaring the state of emergency was breached as, under the Constitution, only the President has the authority to declare a state of emergency. On 31 January 2022, Myint Swe approved the extension of the state of emergency until 31 July 2022.

By accepting his nomination as Acting President and by transferring legislative, judicial and executive powers to the Commander-in-Chief, Myint Swe contributed to overthrowing the democratically elected government and is therefore responsible for undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma.

Mya Tun Oo

Date of birth: 4 or 5 May 1961

Nationality: Myanmar

Gender: male

General Mya Tun Oo is a member of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw). He was appointed Minister of Defence on 1 February 2021 and is a member of the State Administrative Council (SAC).

On 1 February 2021, the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw), led by Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, staged a coup in Myanmar by setting aside the results of the elections held on 8 November 2020 and by overthrowing the democratically elected government. As part of the coup, Vice-President Myint Swe, functioning as Acting President, declared a state of emergency on 1 February 2021 and transferred the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the state to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. On 2 February 2021, the SAC was established to exercise those powers, preventing the democratically elected government from fulfilling its mandate. Mya Tun Oo participated in the meeting of the National Defence and Security Council (NDSC) on 31 January 2022, which extended the state of emergency until 31 July 2022. As member of the NDSC and SAC, General Mya Tun Oo has been directly involved in and responsible for decision-making concerning state functions and is therefore responsible for undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma.

Additionally, the SAC adopted decisions restricting the rights to freedom of expression, including access to information, and peaceful assembly. The military forces and authorities operating under the control of the SAC have committed serious human rights violations since 1 February 2021, killing civilian and unarmed protestors, restricting freedom of assembly and of expression, including by restricting internet access, and through arbitrary arrests and detention of opposition leaders and opponents of the coup.

As member of the SAC, General Mya Tun Oo is directly responsible for those repressive decisions and for serious human rights violations. Furthermore, as Minister of Defence, Mya Tun Oo bears responsibility for the attacks by the military forces in Kayah State on 25 December 2021 killing more than 30 people, including children and humanitarian staff, and mass killings and torture of civilians throughout Myanmar. Therefore he is responsible for serious human rights violations in Myanmar/Burma.

In 2018, the United Nations as well as international civil society organisations reported gross human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in Kachin, Rakhine and Shan States against the Rohingya population by the military and police forces since 2011 and concluded that many of those violations amount to the gravest crimes under international law. Mya Tun Oo was Joint Chief of Staff of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw), the third most senior position in the Tatmadaw, from August 2016 until his appointment as Minister of Defence. In that capacity, he oversaw military operations carried out in Rakhine State and coordinated the various armed forces, including the Army, Navy and Air Force, as well as the use of artillery. He is therefore responsible for those serious violations and abuses against the Rohingya population.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2022/663

of 21 April 2022

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/761 as regards the volume of the tariff rate quota for high-quality beef from Paraguay

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1) and in particular Article 187, first paragraph, point (a), thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/761 (2) lays down the rules for the management of import and export tariff quotas for agricultural products managed by a system of import and export licences and replaces and repeals a certain number of acts that have opened these quotas and provides for specific rules.

(2)

Following the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the ‘United Kingdom’) from the Union, the Union and the United Kingdom notified the other Members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) that their current market access levels will be maintained by apportioning the Union’s tariff rate quotas between the Union and the United Kingdom. The methodology for that apportionment, as well as the EU-27 volumes, are laid down in Regulation (EU) 2019/216 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3).

(3)

However, the Union’s tariff rate quotas that are not part of the WTO schedule of the Union should not have been apportioned.

(4)

Nevertheless, the import tariff quota of 1 000 tonnes, opened based on Council Regulation (EC) No 1149/2002 (4) and expressed in product weight, of high-quality fresh, chilled or frozen beef, which is not part of the WTO schedule of the Union, was incorrectly apportioned by Regulation (EU) 2019/216. Its volume was mistakenly reduced with application as of 1 January 2021.

(5)

Regulation (EU) 2022/111 of the European Parliament and of the Council (5) amended Part A of the Annex to Regulation (EU) 2019/216 by deleting the row concerning the tariff quota for high-quality meat of bovine animals, fresh, chilled or frozen, originating in Paraguay, from the list of the apportioned quotas.

(6)

It is necessary to restore the original quantity of the tariff quota for high-quality beef from Paraguay with order number 09.4455 in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/761.

(7)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/761 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex VIII to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/761 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the seventh day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2022/664

of 21 April 2022

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/159 imposing a definitive safeguard measure against imports of certain steel products

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2015/478 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 2015 on common rules for imports (1) and in particular Articles 16 and 20 thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2015/755 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2015 on common rules for imports from certain third countries (2), and in particular Articles 13 and 16 thereof,

Whereas:

1.   BACKGROUND

(1)

By Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1013 (3) the European Commission (‘the Commission’) imposed a provisional safeguard measure on certain steel products (‘the provisional measure’).

(2)

By Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1712 (4) and in application of the provisions of the Economic Partnership Agreement (‘EPA’) between the Southern African Development Community (‘SADC’) and the European Union (5), the Commission excluded these countries from the application of the safeguard measure.

(3)

By Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/159 (6), the Commission imposed a definitive safeguard measure on certain steel products (‘the definitive safeguard measure’), which consists of tariff-rate quotas (‘TRQs’) with respect to certain steel products (‘the product concerned’) encompassing 26 product categories, set at levels preserving traditional trade flows on a per-product-category basis. A 25 % tariff duty applies only if the quantitative thresholds of these TRQs are exceeded.

(4)

By Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/1029 (7), the Commission prolonged the duration of the safeguard measure until 30 June 2024.

(5)

By Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/434 (8) the Commission adjusted the distribution of quota volumes in certain product categories following the imposition of an import ban on products from Russia and Belarus.

(6)

Certain countries with which the Union has signed an Economic Partnership Agreement (‘certain EPA countries’) (9) were excluded from the application of the definitive measure, and its subsequent amendments, including its prolongation. The exclusion of certain EPA countries from the definitive safeguard measure was justified by the provisions of Article 33 of the EPA. However, the exclusion provided for in the EPA was limited in time and it has now expired as regards certain EPA countries. Accordingly, and in order to respect the Most Favoured Nation (‘MFN’) obligation under WTO rules, certain EPA countries (10) should be brought within the scope of application of the safeguard measure (11).

2.   ANALYSIS

2.1.   Increased imports

(7)

The import data of certain EPA countries was not part of the finding of increased imports made by the Commission in the Definitive Safeguard Regulation (12). This was in application of the principle of parallelism (13), whereby the investigating authority cannot consider in its analysis of whether imports had increased imports from those origins excluded from the application of the measure.

(8)

Since imports from certain EPA countries can no longer benefit from the exclusion under the EPA, the Commission needs to reassess the original finding of increased imports by incorporating the import data from certain EPA countries.

(9)

The evolution of imports in the period considered in the Definitive Safeguard Regulation, updated by including certain EPA countries import volumes, is shown in the following tables: first, for the product concerned (Table 1); and then, as a supplementary analysis, on a per product family basis (Table 2).

(11)

Imports increased in all three product families (flat products, long products and tubes) in absolute terms by respectively 64 %, 96 % and 60 % during 2013-MRP. In the same period, imports also increased in relative terms with market shares increasing respectively from 14,28 % to 21,01 %, 8,67 % to 14,02 % and 20,47 % to 25,75 %.

(12)

Therefore, the Commission confirmed that, after the inclusion of imports from certain EPA countries, there had been an increase of imports, both in absolute and relative terms for the product concerned in the period considered. In fact, this increase in imports is even larger than the one established by the Commission in the Definitive Safeguard Regulation. Thus, the Commission confirmed the findings of the definitive measure that an increase in imports of the product concerned took place, and that finding was further corroborated by the supplementary analysis undertaken at the level of each of the three product families.

2.2.   Unforeseen developments

(13)

In recitals (48) to (62) of the Definitive Safeguard Regulation (14), the Commission described in detail the unforeseen developments it had identified which had led to the increase in imports.

(14)

The nature of those unforeseen developments encompasses a wide array of actions, developments and measures affecting the steel market on a worldwide scale. The addition into the analysis of certain EPA countries, which represent a minor share in the overall level of world steel production capacity (15) can therefore not change the findings made by the Commission in the Definitive Safeguard Regulation in this respect.

(15)

Therefore, the findings regarding unforeseen developments of the Definitive Safeguard Regulation are confirmed.

2.3.   Threat of serious injury, causation and Union interest

(16)

The addition of certain EPA countries’ imports into the analysis in any event has shown that the level of increased imports was even larger than in their absence. Therefore, the findings with regard to threat of serious injury, causation and Union interest made in the Definitive Safeguard Regulation remain valid.

2.4.   Conclusion

(17)

In view of the above findings, the Commission confirmed that after the inclusion in the analysis of the imports from certain EPA countries, the original findings with regard to increase in imports, unforeseen developments, threat of serious injury, causation and Union interest remain valid.

3.   UPDATE OF LIST OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES SUBJECT TO MEASURES

(18)

The Commission calculated whether, in application of Article 18 of Regulation (EU) 2015/478 regarding developing countries member of the WTO, any of the certain EPA countries exceeded the relevant threshold of imports in each product category. The Commission based its calculation on the data concerning the year 2019 imports dataset in order to ensure consistency with the approach used for the measure currently in place.

(19)

The changes to the developing country exclusions are as follows:

South Africa is included under the measure in product categories 8, 9 and 10.

4.   LEVEL AND ALLOCATION OF TRQS

(20)

By including imports from certain EPA countries under the measure, the level of TRQs for each product category and allocation of TRQs (where appropriate) needs to be revised in line with the principle of parallelism, so that the volumes of quotas available correspond to the historical volumes of imports (16) from the countries subject to the measure.

(21)

In terms of the methodology used, the Commission followed the same approach underpinning the calculation and allocation of quotas in the Definitive Safeguard Regulation, only updating the figures resulting from the addition of imports from certain EPA countries.

(22)

The baseline to calculate the TRQ volume was based on the reference period (namely average imports in the period 2015-2017). Therefore, the Commission recalculated the average volume of imports in the reference period (17), per product category, including where appropriate imports from certain EPA countries (18).

(23)

The Commission recalculated the volume of TRQs by adding to the average volume of imports in the reference period the subsequent increases of quota that have taken place since the imposition of the definitive safeguard measure (19). The Commission also took into account the changes in quota introduced by Regulation (EU) 2022/434.

(24)

For the periods as of 1 July 2022 onwards, the Commission added, where applicable, the quota volumes corresponding to certain EPA countries’ imports.

(25)

For the quarter April-June 2022, which was ongoing when this Regulation entered into force, the Commission recalculated proportionally the amount of quota that will be added, where applicable, to the quota volumes initially available in the ongoing quarter (20) from the day this Regulation is applicable (1 May 2022) until 30 June 2022, when the current safeguard period (21) will conclude.

(26)

Regarding the allocation of quotas, and in order to determine whether any of the certain EPA countries qualified for a country-specific quota (22) the Commission assessed, for each of these countries (23), whether their level of imports was least 5% of total imports in the reference period (in each product category).

(27)

As explained in recital (20) above, only South Africa exceeds the relevant thresholds of Article 18 of Regulation (EU) 2015/478 and it is therefore not benefitting from the developing country exemption. The Commission thus assessed the situation of South Africa in the three product categories where it is subject to the measure. The result is as follows:

(28)

Category 8 is administered globally. Therefore, South Africa will be part of the global quota. The proportional share of its historical import volumes will be added to the global quota volumes in this category. For categories 9 and 10, South Africa will receive country-specific quotas in line with its historical import volumes.

(29)

An Implementing Regulation to be published once the ongoing functioning review investigation initiated on 17 December 2021 ends, will update the TRQ volumes in the Annex for the period starting on 1 July 2022. This Regulation will apply as of 1 May 2022 in order to provide sufficient notice to all economic operators.

(30)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Safeguards established under Article 3(3) of Regulation (EU) 2015/478 and Article 22(3) of Regulation (EU) 2015/755 respectively,

(9)  Botswana, Cameroon, Eswatini, Fiji, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Lesotho, Namibia and South Africa.

(10)  Certain EPA countries are developing countries and WTO members, therefore they can benefit from ‘developing country’ exclusions, when the relevant conditions are met, in line with EU and WTO rules.

(11)  This does not apply to Mozambique as the EPA entered into provisional application for Mozambique on 4 February 2018. Thus, the exemption under the EPA remains in force.

(16)  In addition to liberalisation and other changes to the quotas that may have taken place.

(17)  See recital (146) of Definitive Safeguard Regulation.

(18)  The Commission only updated the volumes of those categories that registered imports from SADC countries in the reference period. If in the reference period there were no imports from these countries in a given category, then the TRQ volumes for such category remain unchanged.

(19)  The level of quotas was topped-up by 5 % upon entry into force of the definitive safeguard measure, and it was subsequently increased by 3 % every 1 July as a result of progressive liberalisation.

(20)  The quota volumes initially available in this quarter were defined last by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/434.

(21)  The current safeguard period refers to the period 1 July 2021 – 30 June 2022.

COUNCIL DECISION (CFSP) 2022/667

of 21 April 2022

on an assistance measure taking the form of a general programme for support to the African Union under the European Peace Facility for the period 2022-2024

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Articles 28(1) and 41(2) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Council Decision (CFSP) 2021/509 (1), a European Peace Facility (EPF) has been established for the financing by Member States of Union actions under the Common Foreign and Security Policy to preserve peace, prevent conflicts and strengthen international security, in accordance with Article 21(2), point (c), of the Treaty. In particular, pursuant to Article 1(2), second subparagraph, point (ii), of Decision (CFSP) 2021/509, the EPF may finance assistance measures to support the military aspects of peace support operations led by a regional or international organisation.

(2)

Assistance measures under the EPF may take the form of a specific measure or of a general programme for support with a given geographical or thematic focus.

(3)

The Council acknowledges the continued strategic importance of the Africa-EU Peace and Security Partnership, under the Joint Africa-EU Strategy, in particular the cooperation framework established under the African Peace Facility (APF) and the leading role of the African Union (AU) in preserving peace and security on the African continent as specified in Article 16 of the Protocol relating to the establishment of the AU Peace and Security Council. The Council remains committed to building AU capacities in this area, providing assistance to African-led peace support operations and strengthening the African Peace and Security Architecture towards its full operationalisation, in line with the Memorandum of Understanding between the African Union and the European Union on Peace, Security and Governance of 23 May 2018, as well as to sustaining established cooperation mechanisms, in particular an integrated approach based on partnership, consultation and enhanced strategic coordination.

(4)

A seamless transition of Union support from the APF to the EPF was ensured through the adoption of an assistance measure taking the form of a general programme for support to the AU covering the second half of 2021 (2). That general programme covering the second half of 2021 should be followed by a multiannual general programme for support to the AU for the period 2022-2024, allowing for the continued provision of reliable and predictable financing to African-led peace support operations mandated or authorised by the AU Peace and Security Council, while also ensuring the flexibility necessary to effectively and efficiently react to conflict developments on the African continent. It is expected that actions under the assistance measure might be implemented by entities that have experience in the implementation of actions under the APF and under the assistance measure taking the form of a general programme for support to the AU under the EPF covering the second half of 2021.

(5)

By its letter of 1 July 2021 addressed to the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the AU requested the Union to provide continued support from 1 July 2021 to African-led peace support operations mandated or authorised by the AU Peace and Security Council.

(6)

Assistance measures are to be implemented taking into account the principles and requirements set out in Decision (CFSP) 2021/509, and in accordance with the rules for the implementation of revenue and expenditure financed under the EPF.

(7)

The Council reaffirms its determination to protect, promote and fulfil human rights, fundamental freedoms and democratic principles, and to strengthen the rule of law and good governance, in compliance with the United Nations Charter, with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and with international law, in particular international human rights and international humanitarian law,

Min Aung Hlaing

Date of birth: 3 July 1956

Place of birth: Tavoy, Myanmar/Burma

Nationality: Myanmar

National Identification number: 12/SAKHANA(N)020199

Gender: male

Min Aung Hlaing has been the Commander-in-Chief of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw) since 2011. He is Chairman of the State Administration Council (SAC) and member of the National Defence and Security Council (NDSC). Min Aung Hlaing declared himself as “Prime Minister” on 1 August 2021. On 1 February 2021, the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw), led by Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, staged a coup in Myanmar/Burma by setting aside the results of the elections held on 8 November 2020 and by overthrowing the democratically elected government. As part of the coup, Vice-President Myint Swe, functioning as Acting President, declared a state of emergency on 1 February 2021 and transferred the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the State to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. On 2 February 2021, the SAC was established to exercise those powers, preventing the democratically elected government from fulfilling its mandate. On 31 January 2022, upon the request of Min Aung Hlaing, the NDSC formally extended the state of emergency until 31 July 2022.

By concentrating all powers and as Chairman of the SAC, Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing has been directly involved in and responsible for decision-making concerning state functions and is therefore responsible for undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma. Additionally, the SAC adopted decisions restricting the rights to freedom of expression, including access to information, and peaceful assembly. The military forces and authorities operating under the control of the SAC have committed serious human rights violations since 1 February 2021, killing civilian and unarmed protestors, restricting freedom of assembly and of expression, including by restricting internet access, and through arbitrary arrests and detention of opposition leaders and opponents of the coup. As Chairman of the SAC, Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing is directly responsible for those repressive decisions and for serious human rights violations.

In 2018, the UN as well as international civil society organisations reported gross human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in Kachin, Rakhine and Shan States against the Rohingya population by the military and police forces since 2011 and concluded that many of those violations amount to the gravest crimes under international law. As Commander-in-Chief of the Tatmadaw since 2011, Min Aung Hlaing is directly responsible for those serious violations and abuses against the Rohingya population.

Myint Swe

Date of birth: 24 May 1951

Nationality: Myanmar

Gender: male

Lieutenant General Myint Swe is a member of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw) and was the Tatmadaw-appointed Vice-President until 1 February 2021. On that date, Myint Swe participated in a National Defence and Security Council (NDSC) meeting with other Tatmadaw members. The NDSC meeting was unconstitutional as it did not include its civilian members. During that meeting, Myint Swe was declared Acting President. Myint Swe then declared a state of emergency and handed over legislative, executive and judicial powers of the State to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. The procedure for declaring the state of emergency was breached as, under the Constitution, only the President has the authority to declare a state of emergency. On 31 January 2022, Myint Swe approved the extension of the state of emergency until 31 July 2022.

By accepting his nomination as Acting President and by transferring legislative, judicial and executive powers to the Commander-in-Chief, Myint Swe contributed to overthrowing the democratically elected government and is therefore responsible for undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma.

Mya Tun Oo

Date of birth: 4 or 5 May 1961

Nationality: Myanmar

Gender: male

General Mya Tun Oo is a member of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw). He was appointed Minister of Defence on 1 February 2021 and is a member of the State Administrative Council (SAC).

On 1 February 2021, the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw), led by Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, staged a coup in Myanmar by setting aside the results of the elections held on 8 November 2020 and by overthrowing the democratically elected government. As part of the coup, Vice-President Myint Swe, functioning as Acting President, declared a state of emergency on 1 February 2021 and transferred the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the state to the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. On 2 February 2021, the SAC was established to exercise those powers, preventing the democratically elected government from fulfilling its mandate. Mya Tun Oo participated in the meeting of the National Defence and Security Council (NDSC) on 31 January 2022, which extended the state of emergency until 31 July 2022. As member of the NDSC and SAC, General Mya Tun Oo has been directly involved in and responsible for decision-making concerning state functions and is therefore responsible for undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma.

Additionally, the SAC adopted decisions restricting the rights to freedom of expression, including access to information, and peaceful assembly. The military forces and authorities operating under the control of the SAC have committed serious human rights violations since 1 February 2021, killing civilian and unarmed protestors, restricting freedom of assembly and of expression, including by restricting internet access, and through arbitrary arrests and detention of opposition leaders and opponents of the coup.

As member of the SAC, General Mya Tun Oo is directly responsible for those repressive decisions and for serious human rights violations. Furthermore, as Minister of Defence, Mya Tun Oo bears responsibility for the attacks by the military forces in Kayah State on 25 December 2021 killing more than 30 people, including children and humanitarian staff, and mass killings and torture of civilians throughout Myanmar. Therefore he is responsible for serious human rights violations in Myanmar/Burma.

In 2018, the United Nations as well as international civil society organisations reported gross human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in Kachin, Rakhine and Shan States against the Rohingya population by the military and police forces since 2011 and concluded that many of those violations amount to the gravest crimes under international law. Mya Tun Oo was Joint Chief of Staff of the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw), the third most senior position in the Tatmadaw, from August 2016 until his appointment as Minister of Defence. In that capacity, he oversaw military operations carried out in Rakhine State and coordinated the various armed forces, including the Army, Navy and Air Force, as well as the use of artillery. He is therefore responsible for those serious violations and abuses against the Rohingya population.
