UN rights expert calls for sanctions on Myanmar's oil and gas sector

A United Nations human rights investigator called on states on Wednesday to impose economic sanctions on Myanmar’s oil and gas sector to cripple the junta that took power five months ago.
Thomas Andrews, U.N. special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, said that no state had imposed any sanctions on Myanmar’s oil and gas sector, although some had slapped them on military-controlled enterprises and revenue from gems, timber and mining.
