Axworthy: Refugee System and Restricted-Travel Sanction
axworthy: A lot of these guys like to fly off to Bangkok and get a new suit or something, according to The Chronicle Herald. I'm not being facetious, Axworthy said in an interview. We're talking about targeting specific people, particularly in the military, said Axworthy, the chair of the Canadian-based World Refugee Council, which is working with the UN to reform the global refugee system. A restricted-travel sanction would be very effective for a lot of the elites in Myanmar. The current Liberal government, which has dispatched special envoy Bob Rae and International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau to the region, suggested Thursday it was open to the idea. Axworthy, a former Liberal foreign affairs minister under Jean Chretien, called on Canada to lead a diplomatic push for sanctions through its diplomats at the UN and in missions across Asia.
