NEW YORK  The annual report of Human Rights Watch claims Myanmar's human rights situation was a "car crash" in 2014, and experienced a marked deterioration following two years of progress after the country's returned to civilian government in 2011. The NGO says Myanmar's reform progress experienced significant slowdowns and even reversals of basic freedoms and democratic progress, as the government passed laws with significant human rights limitations and increased arrests of peaceful critics, including land protesters and journalists.
