Myanmar: Adani Group continued business with military junta despite claiming exit, leaked documents reveal; incl. co. comments
"Adani proposed coal ventures to sanctioned Myanmar military despite public vow to cut ties, leaked documents show", 8 May 2023
Global resources giant Adani tried to develop coal ventures in Myanmar at the same time it was telling the world it would exit the country in the wake of a bloody military takeover, leaked documents show.
...[L]eaked documents obtained by a Myanmar human rights group and shared with ABC Investigations reveal Adani, on the same day it flagged its exit from the port, lodged an "expression of interest" to export coal from Myanmar...that would help fund the brutal regime.
An Adani group spokesman did not respond directly to the ABC's questions about the Myanmar coal or powerline proposals. He said Adani Power and Adani Transmission "do not conduct business in Myanmar and [have] no interest in doing so". "Any rumour mongering or suggestion otherwise by the ABC or others is unfounded and incorrect."
...[I]n further revelations which cast doubt on Adani's public disavowals of the junta, documents show it has continued to engage with sanctioned regime leaders while pouring millions into its Yangon international terminal.
