A new report by Rehmonnya, the Human Rights Foundation of MonLand (HURFOM), calls for targeted sanctions, a global arms embargo, aviation fuel sanctions, referral to the International Criminal Court and cross border aid.
HURFOM’s findings on socio-economic impacts post-coup in Southeastern Burma confirm that the Burma Army has deliberately derailed prospects for democracy in the country and has embarked on a campaign of targeted and wide-spread abuse in an attempt to terrorize the population into submission. Their volatile and unlawful actions have resulted in widespread displacement resulting in a refugee crisis alongside crippling social and economic impacts on innocent civilians. In areas of Mon State, Karen State and Tanintharyi region, the military junta has continued to act with impunity. HURFOM condemns the ongoing attacks and calls for immediate international intervention.
