UN rights expert calls for cutting off Myanmar junta after crimes

Tom Andrews, a former US congressman serving
in the independent post, said in a statement that he had received more reports
of “mass killings, attacks on hospitals and humanitarian targets and the
bombing and burning of villages” in recent months.

“The military junta is functioning as a
criminal enterprise, committing murder, torture, abductions, forced
displacement, all the while stealing the revenue and seizing the assets that
rightfully belong to the people of Myanmar,” Andrews said. “The international
community must take strong, meaningful steps to cut the junta’s access to
weapons, funds and legitimacy.”
