Australia: New report alleges Australian companies' involvement in human rights violations overseas

1 December 2018

A report (linked below) by the Human Rights Law Centre, Nowhere to Turn: Addressing Australian corporate abuses overseas, documents the activities of Australian companies overseas allegedly linked to human rights violations, and presents recommendations for reform.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Curtain Bros, a company cited in the report but not yet having made a public statement in response to the allegations against it, to provide a response about claims the company was involved in forced evictions of residents in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Curtain Bros did not respond to us. The other companies cited in the report have public statements about the allegations on record.
