On the 3rd commemoration of Rohingya genocide, Justice for Myanmar published a report demanding a criminal investigation of the military’s crony KBZ group and Max Myanmar. According to the report, these companies have failed to meet their human rights due diligence obligations. Their business partners include major corporations from the USA, EU, UK, Switzerland and Japan, such as Royal Dutch Shell, AIA, Accor, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Hughes Network Systems and Kempinski AG.
Justice For Myanmar calls on business partners of KBZ and Max Myanmar; as part of those due diligence obligations; to:
- Ensure that they do not do business with corporations that have or may have aided and abetted the commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
- Require KBZ and Max Myanmar to fully and publicly disclose all their business relationships with the Myanmar military, and all their donations to the Myanmar military and UEHRD. If KBZ and Max Myanmar fail to do so, cut all business ties with them.
- Cut all ties with KBZ and Max Myanmar unless evidence establishes that they do not, currently or in the future, have any business relationships with the Myanmar military and that they have not made and do not, currently or in the future, make donations to the Myanmar military.
