GENEVA (5 August 2019) – The U.N. Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar urged the international community on Monday to sever ties with Myanmar’s military and the vast web of companies it controls and relies on. The Mission said the revenues the military earns from domestic and foreign business deals substantially enhances its ability to carry out gross violations of human rights with impunity.

The report, for the first time, establishes in detail the degree to which Myanmar’s military has used its own businesses, foreign companies and arms deals to support brutal operations against ethnic groups that constitute serious crimes under international law, bypassing civilian oversight and evading accountability.

EU extends Myanmar arms embargo, other sanctions for a year

BRUSSELS — The European Union is prolonging by a year an embargo on any arms that could be used in security crackdowns in Myanmar as well as sanctions against 14 top military and border officials.

EU headquarters said Monday that based on an annual review the restrictive measures will be extended until April 30, 2020.

The travel bans and asset freezes were imposed on the 14 officials “for serious human rights violations, or association with such violations” against Myanmar’s Muslim Rohingya minority.

Myanmar’s military launched a brutal counterinsurgency campaign in the western state of Rakhine in 2017, forcing more than 700,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh.

The EU also refuses to cooperate with, or provide training to, the Myanmar military.
