Rohingya Muslims carry their children and belongings after crossing the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh
She said development was "sorely needed" in Rakhine, one of Myanmar's poorest states, but that it "must benefit everyone in the state regardless of their ethnicity, not entrench the existing system of apartheid against Rohingya people".
"Not only does the Myanmar government have a responsibility to account for the alleged crimes in Rakhine state since October 9, 2016, and August 25, 2017, and the violations that continue today, but the worldwide community must also be vigilant", Lee said.
After destroying Rahonigya villages in the Rakhine state with the bulldozers Myanmar has started building security installations on the land, Amnesty International said. At least three new such facilities are reportedly under construction.
It claims the largest is in the village of Ah Lel Chaung in Buthidaung Township, where eyewitnesses said the military forcibly evicted Rohingya from certain areas to make way for construction.
The report said the bases would house the same security forces that committed crimes against the Rohingya.
"It is unreasonable to assert that our leadership, whose mission has human rights at its core, remains indifferent to the allegations of grave human rights violations", he said, insisting that the government was "ready to take action where there is clear evidence".
Kentucky edges No. 13 Tennessee for SEC championship
I don't need to tell Vol fans not to take this opportunity for granted. "We usually come with a lot of energy". If the Vols win their first round game, they would play the victor of Miami (FL) and Loyola Chicago.
A Wrinkle In Time With Jennifer Lee
Characters zip from one planet to the next with little connective tissue, and we must accept each narrative jolt at face value. Even when working with a major studio and a major property, she has made a movie that's completely her own, flaws and all.
No. 15 Arizona, USC battle for Pac-12 crown
This was the third straight year, and sixth time in seven seasons, the Buffaloes and Wildcats have met in the Pac-12 Tournament. There shouldn't be a debate whether the gargantuan freshman is the most dominant player in college basketball.
(COMBO) This handout image of a satellite photograph released by Amnesty International and DigitalGlobe on March 12, 2018 shows new structures and fencing built over the previously burnt village of Kan Kya in Myanmar's Rakhine State.
Satellite imagery also shows how new refugee reception centres - meant to "welcome" Rohingya who return from Bangladesh - are surrounded by security fences and close to areas with a heavy presence of military and border guard personnel.
According to Bangladesh government's statistics, an average of 75 Rohingya refugees fled their villages in Myanmar every day between January 1 and February 15. Meanwhile, Myanmar and Bangladesh have signed a repatriation deal, though it has not begun yet.
In January, Bangladesh and Myanmar have agreed on a two-year timeframe for the repatriation of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees.
Amnesty International's report comes as Yanghee Lee, the United Nations' independent investigator on human rights in Myanmar, told the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday that the Myanmar government appears to be using a policy of starvation in Rakhine state to force out remaining Muslims, Reuters reported.
This is worrying since authorities have in the past resettled members of other ethnic groups into Rakhine State as part of efforts to develop the region.

Wallace overcomes Sharma to win Indian Open
I'm very pleased with the birdie at the last, which allowed me to grab a share of the lead. "I also can't wait for the Masters". Wallace and Johnston played the way Emiliano Grillo did on first two days and then Shubhankar played on the second day.
