Myanmar: SOMO and 474 CSOs submit complaint to the OECD Norwegian NCP concerning Telenor's "irresponsible" disengagement from Myanmar

The Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO) and 474 Myanmar-based civil society organisations (CSOs) submitted a complaint to the OECD Norwegian National Contact Point (NCP) concerning Telenor's sale of Telenor Myanmar to M1 Group. The complainants "contend that Telenor has irresponsibly disengaged from its Myanmar operations and failed to act in accordance with the principles and standards in both the OECD Guidelines and United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights". For its part, Telenor said it has "conducted a due diligence on potential buyers in this process".
