Feb. 10, 2021, Myanmar: Justice For Myanmar commends the decision by HAECO to end its contract with Aero Sofi for the refurbishment of an Airbus A300, owned by the Myanmar Air Force. HAECO is owned by Swire Group, which is also the parent company of Cathay Pacific. HAECO’s deal was exposed by Justice For Myanmar and the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project in December.
Justice For Myanmar spokesperson Yadanar Maung says: “HAECO’s cancellation sends a clear message to Myanmar’s illegitimate and brutal military regime that they cannot continue business as usual and must hand power to the people. We call on all other companies with commercial links to the Myanmar military and its businesses to follow HAECO’s example and immediately cut ties”
Justice For Myanmar reiterates calls for the international community to impose immediate targeted sanctions and a global arms embargo against the Myanmar military, following their Feb 1 coup.
