The Case for Making Myanmar’s Report Public
Myanmar is required to report periodically on the measures it has taken to comply with the Order. The purpose of the provisional measures reporting requirement is to permit the Court to assess the appropriateness and adequacy of measures taken and to consider whether additional measures may be merited. Myanmar’s two reports filed to date have been classified confidential, available only to the Court and The Gambia. Myanmar’s third report is due in the coming days.
