Sanction Burmese military companies

In July 2020, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab announced that in response to human rights violations they described as torture, massacre, systematic rape and forced (slave) labour, Min Aung Hlaing, head of the Burmese military, would be banned from taking holidays in the UK.

At the same time, British companies are still doing business with the Burmese military, helping to fund genocide, but the British government refuses to stop it. They refuse to impose targeted sanctions on military companies.

The Burmese military own a huge number of companies in Burma, earning them hundreds of millions of dollars. This money helps fund the human rights violations they commit.

UN investigators have said governments should sanction Burmese military-owned companies, but the British government refuses to do so.

Burmese human rights activists are also calling for sanctions to stop international companies doing business with military owned companies.

No British company should be allowed to help fund genocide.

Take action now, email Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and ask him to support imposing sanctions on Burmese military companies.
