Chain of Command

On 30 March 2011, Min Aung Hlaing became Commander in Chief of the armed forces of Myanmar - otherwise known as the Tatmadaw. The Myanmar Army is by far its largest and most powerful branch. Since Min Aung Hlaing took command of the military the United Nations, human rights groups and others have accused the Myanmar Army of committing genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes across the country.

Research by Security Force Monitor (SFM), a project of the Columbia Law Human Rights Institute, lays bare for the first time the Chain of Command of the Myanmar Army and reveals how allegations anywhere in the country can be linked to senior army commanders.
