Recently announced UK sanctions against two high-ranking generals from Burma won’t work, said Burma Campaign UK’s director Mark Farmaner in an interview with Karen News.
“In the case of Burma the list is not effective, they don’t have money in UK banks and no one thinks they will come here for holidays either. It is certainly not an effective response to what the British government describes as torture, massacre, systematic rape and forced labour by the Burma military.
“These sanctions don’t have any consequences for their human right violations in Burma. We need much stronger, comprehensive and a serious approach by the international community to hit the military with stronger sanctions that will hurt their interests.”
