Myanmar: Open for business? Corporate crime and abuses at Myanmar copper mine
This report focuses on the Monywa copper mine project and highlights forced evictions, substantial environmental and social impacts, and the repression, sometimes brutal, of those who try to protest. It also raises serious questions about opaque corporate dealings and possible infringements of economic sanctions on Myanmar. The report calls on the Government of Myanmar to urgently introduce strong measures for the protection of human rights, and on multinational companies and their home governments to ensure that due diligence is carried out to international standards for all investment in Myanmar.
