A new report released today (Monday) by Britain's Conservative Party ranks Burma as the world's worst violator of human rights.

The report by the party's Human Rights Commission profiles 18 countries, rating them in three categories: freedom, rule of law and human rights violations.

The report says North Korea is the most oppressive country because it is a closed society where freedom and the rule of law are non-existent. However, it rates Burma as the worst country overall because of its human rights violations.

Burma's military government frequently receives international criticism for its poor human rights record, including the continued house arrest of democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Aung San Suu Kyi's freedom has been restricted for most of the past 16 years.
