The NUG welcomes the new export restrictions imposed by the U.S Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) on four entities – two Burmese military and security services entities for providing surveillance technology to the military regime. This action shows continued international pressure and condemnation of the military regime’s human rights abuses, and supports the efforts of pro-democracy activists and lawmakers in their fight for a return to democratic governance in Myanmar.
We are grateful for the work of the US in placing these important restrictions to slow the military’s capacity to continue their campaign of terror and repression. We are hopeful that further targeted sanctions and restrictions will follow, and we hope that more countries follow suit.
