In a revealing letter to the US Chargé d'Affaires in Rangoon, a group of Burmese Americans have urged the United States to investigate how despite the sanctions imposed on Burmese generals, several of their family members and close associates are traveling freely to the US.

The Burmese American citizens, in a letter to the US embassy in Rangoon, with a copy to the US State Department, mentioned names of several Burma's ruling generals and their business associates including tycoon Tayza, of possessing visas or living in the US and undertaking financial transactions.

The group, which cannot be contacted, in the letter sent on October 28 said, several family members of the ruling generals and their associates are living in the US and are helping the generals transfer money for businesses through their bank accounts.

Besides, a few generals are stated to have visited the US despite a ban on travel imposed on them, said the group.
