Dear Friend,
Re: Burma's Refugee Campaign at the U.N.General Assembly 1996
Please find enclosed report regarding with current situation of the
displaced people of Burma. I have also submitted the report to the UNited
Nations General Assembly, the Secretary-General and U.N. High Commissioner
for Refugees.

In this connection, I appeal you and your organization to write to the
Secretary-General and United Nations General Assembly in the support of
creating a Safety Zone in Burma and also to send a peace-keeping missnion
to Burma.

As some of you may be aware that the SLORC is reportedly refusing to accept
the appointment of new Special Rapporteur, Mr Rajsoomer Lallah, on the
ground that it is appointed by the Commission on Human Rights (news
enclosed in the report). This appears to be to prevent the Special
Rapporteur from visiting the site of internally displaced people in Karenni
and Shan States. The relocated sites are reportedly in egregious

Finally, I thank you for your continuing interest in Burma matters.

Yours sincerely
Sd. U Ne Oo.

Dear Secretary-General

Re: Situation of Burma's refugees and displaced people
As a Burmese refugee in Australia, I submit the Secretary-General the
report, "Towards Political Solution to Burma's Refugees Problem", regarding
with the current situation of displaced people of Bur;ma. I have also
submitted the report to the United Nations General Assembly and U.N. High
Commissioner for Refugees.

As the Secretary-General may aware, the Burmese military government has
again making mass arrest of the opposition members of the National League
for Democracy at this weekend. These arrests were made in order to prevent
the National League for Democracy from holding the congress that
commemorate the 8th founding anniversary. I extend my appeal for your
urgent attention to this matter.

With regards to the solution to the problems of Burma's refugees, the SLORC
has several time refused to take the initiatives from diplomatic community.
It is quite clear now that the SLORC will not respond to the
quiet-diplomatic persuasions. I therefore request the U.N. Secretary-
General and the Security Council to urgently create the so-called
Safety Zones for refugees and displaced persons. I also ask the Secretary-
General to authorize to send a U.N. Peace-keeping mission to Burma.

I also request that the Secretary-General give U.N. High Commissioner for
Refugees a necessary mandate to protect the internally displaced people in

Finally, I thank the U.N. Secretary-General for your kind attention to
Burma matters.

Yours respectfully and sincerely
Sd. U Ne Oo.
