7:18 pm

7:19 pm
military. it includes veteran activist, count men, you as well as 2 others accused of killing a military informant by many believe that this is a tactic to try to install and still more here is the population. but it's quite unlikely that this is going to be successful, although, although there's quite a lot of anger in the country over on 2100 people have already been by the military . and so many are unlikely to be count by these recent actions. he how the executions have spock international outrage? amnesty international said this, the fall men were convicted by a military court in highly secretive and deeply unfair trials. the international community must act immediately, has more than 100 people, i believe, to be on death row. after being convicted in similar proceedings, i don't our has been killing thousands of people since it's take over. but this is
7:20 pm
the 1st time that the country has met it out. capital punishment here since 1988. and joining me now for more from bangkok as deputy director of human rights watch phil robinson fill you and special wrap it on human rights. immune ma, tom andrews called the executions a depraved act. and said, these must be a turning point for the international community. when it well, it's a very good point, and these are outrageous and unacceptable actions by the myanmar military junta. and it should be a turning point for the international community. we saw the international community basically go silent over the past year, dealing with me and mar, ah, they've just all but disappeared. and it just needs to be a new inflection point or real action. not less more statements, but we need to see action on sanctions. we need to see action on holding the military accountable for its rights abuses. we need to see action on the un
7:21 pm
security council moving to have a global arms embargo. all these things are, are issues of the people of myanmar have called for. and this act by the military contest, are trying to intimidate the burmese people. that's exactly what thereafter in it should not be allowed to succeed. and it's time for the international media step up and do something. let's talk about sanction, because you mentioned them the u. s. m e u sanctions have been imposed against somebody creone draw or they're not working it's, it's far too little and it's, it's not targeting enough of the, the corporations connected the military, it's not even targeting all the top people in the military. now the reality is they have not inflicted the pain they need to, and particularly they have to go up the immune, myanmar, oil and gas enterprise. they have to go after issues of like, for instance, aviation fuel. these are sort of the, the targeted areas that need to be focused on by sanctions, not just going after the commander's wife, who owns a jewelry shop somewhere. it's got to be something that got real teeth and
7:22 pm
something that is strategic. and up to date, we just haven't seen that. what our trim is that what action should governments be taking against the hunter would have to be effective? well, i think they need to start talking about having asi on lead the response on the international community. the association of southeast asian nations is just not prepared to deal with this problem. i think what we need to have is a new focus group or a new contact group of key countries and governments are working on the myanmar issue. we're prepared to take concerted action and try to also round up some of the countries like australia, south korea, japan and others who have done nothing to step up and tried to pressure the military junta, for part long it has been the european union, the u. s. canada and the u. k. and that's simply not enough. this is a global problem. this a global threat security based in the age origin. and now it's time for global action where there is
7:23 pm
a global action we are witnessing button relation to another crisis. the ukraine crisis thing me and i will continue to remain in the back home as long as there's war continues. well, we're concerned that the, the situation ukraine is drawing all the air out of the room. you know, the reality is that the situation ukraine is very grave and i don't want to take anything away from what's happening in ukraine. but the situation myanmar is working in a, in a constant downward spiral. crimes against humanity or being committed across the country. we have a military that is in the dark at the international court of justice for genocide. i dont know how much worse it needs to be in myanmar for the international committee. the care, the international commuting has to have the capacity to care about more than one thing at a time. and while the people of ukraine deserve our support. so to the people of myanmar from robinson relieve her for the time being with thank you so much for speaking to us today. friend robinson from human rights watch. thanks so much.
