MYANMAR – Justice for Myanmar has revealed that Japanese Multinational Corporations have received millions in revenue from Myanmar Railways under projects financed by loans from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) that were awarded before the coup attempt.
Myanmar railways is a state owned industry and the junta council unlawfully controlled it. After the coup attempt, an estimated 90% of its 30,000 civil servants have courageously joined the civil disobedience movement and refused to work under the junta council, by risking their lives and livelihoods.
The continuation of the railway improvement projects provide the legitimacy of the junta council and provide to improve their logistical capacity.
The terrorist coup council uses trains in moving troops, arms, ammunitions and other supplies to commit atrocious crimes across Myanmar with total impunity.
The railway improvement projects were carried out by the multinational corporations from Japan and the European Union (EU) in partnership with Myanmar military crony companies. So, Justice For Myanmar have asked Japan to stop helping the project.
