Report: Access to Court Documents in Yangon

Through the support of Open Society Foundations, Justice Base in partnership with Technology Solutions for Human Rights ("TSHR"), implemented a project to assess whether third parties could access court documents in Yangon courts. The project's aim was to strengthen the rule of law in Myanmar's criminal justice system by assessing the barriers which exist in Yangon Region's Township and District Courts and analysing Myanmar's compliance with laws relating to the publication of court documents, primarily the provision of judgments to third parties

Report: An analysis of Myanmar’s compliance with Fair Trail Rights

This report analyses Myanmar’s compliance with five key domestic and international fair trial rights: the right to a defence, the right to adequate time and facilities to prepare a defence, the right to a hearing without undue delay, the right to a hearing by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal and the right to a public hearing.

Report: Behind Closed Door ( Right to a Public Hearing)

This report aims to provide a snapshot, as of mid-2016, of the extent to which the public is able to access and observe proceedings in Yangon Region’s courts, including Township Courts, District Courts and the Yangon High Court. The findings presented below are based primarily on the research of four Myanmar nationals recruited by Justice Base to spend a month each observing, and attempting to observe, hearings in Yangon’s courts. Justice Base also conducted several interviews with Myanmar lawyers and employees of legal nongovernmental organisations to elicit their views as to the state of public access to court proceedings in Yangon and the perceived importance of such access.
