‘They need to feel it personally’
Geoff Cohn OAM from Democracy for Burma, a pro-democracy campaign group, told SBS News that the imposition of sanctions would send a powerful message.
“Where sanctions hit is when they are aimed at senior military figures and their families,” he said. “They need to feel it personally.
“They need to know that their bank accounts are under threat and they need their children to be saying ‘Dad, what have you done? My studies have been terminated, I was doing so well in Australia’.”
