Myanmar: Ministry of Defence’s refusal to relocate military-owned acid factory threatens health of local community
Amnesty International is disappointed by the decision by the Ministry of Defence to refuse to relocate the Moe Gyo sulphuric acid factory in Sagaing region, north-western Myanmar, which poses severe risks to the health of the community living in the surrounding area. The factory, which produces sulphuric acid to supply the nearby Letpadaung and Sabetaung and Kyisintaung (S&K) copper mines, is operated by the military-owned company the Union of Myanmar Economic Holdings Limited (UMEHL).
