Dear Secretary General Ban Ki Moon,
We send our greetings and blessings at this end of the year. We appreciate your continued focus on the terrible suffering in Burma, and support your plans for a potential visit there soon. We have two requests. The monks of the International Burmese Monks Organization (IBMO) would like a meeting with you at the earliest time.
We also request that you insist that all political prisoners, including Daw Aung Saw Suu Kyi, be released by the end of December, 2008 or you will recommend to the Security Council that they pass an arms embargo against Burma. The regime must also agree to allow the ICRC access to all political prisoners immediately without conditions.to continue
