Myanmar Christian Group Attacks Drug Trade

Myanmar’s massive drug trade is a pillar of the economy.

CHR Comment: The aggressive tactics of the Pat Jason movement in Myanmar is an example of vigilante justice where there is no governmental effort to address the drug problems in mountainous Kachin State. The group, formed mostly by Baptists and Roman Catholics, perform drug raids, interrogations, and have flogged addicts in an effort to inspire repentance. The group claims more than 100,000 members, which if true would make it one of the largest interest groups in the nation.
