Biggest Burma Dirty List Ever Published – 30 Companies Exposed

11.12. < 30 new companies have been added to the “Dirty List” published today by the Burma Campaign UK. A total of 170 companies feature on the new list. The ‘Dirty List’ exposes companies that are directly or indirectly helping to finance Burma’s brutal military dictatorship.

“This list proves that the current sanctions are not working. More companies than ever are investing in Burma in the oil, gas and dams sectors. New targeted sanctions against the regime must now be implemented if the international community is serious about cutting the regime’s financial lifeline” said Johnny Chatterton, Campaigns Officer at the Burma Campaign UK. “To those that claim investment aids the people of Burma, the evidence shows the opposite is true. As investment has increased, the human rights situation has deteriorated.” watch the list there http://www.burmacampaign.org.uk/pm/weblog.php?id=P409
The new companies added to the list are the result of new information and an influx of new investment in Burma’s gas and hydroelectricity sector.
– 34 companies on the list are in the oil & gas sector.
– 28 companies on the the list are in the hydroelectricity sector
– 57 companies on the list are in the tourism sector – either operating tours to Burma or promoting tourism through guides.
