US Congressman Said Army Atrocities In Kachin State Could Be War Crimes

23 Nov 2012

An Arizona congressman has stated that the Burma army has committed 
human rights violations against the ethnic Kachin.

“The atrocities committed against the Kachin by the Burma Army may amount 
to war crimes or crimes against humanity” said Trent Franks, co-chairman 
of the International Religious Freedom Caucus. The conservative Republican 
lawmaker's comments appeared in an opinion piece published 
by the Washington Times newspaper last Monday.
