“On several issues she’s part of the problem”, Mark Farmaner, director of Burma Campaign UK, told MPs.
Giving evidence to the International Development Committee, Mark Farmaner is quoted in the Guardian: “She has kept political prisoners in jail. Although she hasn’t the power to stop their arrests, she has the power to release them – including a 14-year-old recently jailed who was arrested by the Burmese army. She can repeal repressive laws, she has powers to improve human rights. She’s choosing not to.”
