Accountability Body: Rights Violations and Islamic Cooperation
accountability body: Unlike the fact-finding mission, the mechanism has securing evidence that could be used in pursuing criminal indictments as its main purpose, according to CTV. The resolution establishing the new team was presented jointly by the European Union, led by Austria, and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, led by Pakistan. The 47-member Human Rights Council voted 35-3 to create an independent mechanism -- in essence, an accountability body -- to complement a fact-finding mission the council previously authorized to help document alleged rights violations in Myanmar. China, Burundi and the Philippines opposed the measure. The accountability body's work, which could begin in coming months, is expected to cover a massive security crackdown that began in August 2017. Seven countries abstained from the vote.
