U.N. investigator says targeted sanctions must pressure Myanmar military

GENEVA (Reuters) - Targeted sanctions must be made to work against Myanmar’s military leaders, U.N. human rights investigator Yanghee Lee told Reuters on Wednesday, hours after revealing she had been barred from the country.

“From what I see right now I’m not sure if they are feeling pressured. I’m not sure if there is the right kind of pressure placed on the military commanders and the generals,” Lee said by phone from Seoul.
