Feb. 9, 2021, Myanmar: Justice For Myanmar acknowledges Lim Kaling for his albeit late commitment to ending his investment in the Myanmar military’s tobacco monopoly, after 28 years. On Feb 7, Justice For Myanmar launched an online petition calling on the Razer board to sack Lim Kaling unless he acts immediately to divest. Thank you to all who signed the petition. Lim Kaling heard your voice and acted.

This does not mean RMH Singapore is ending its relationship with the military regime. More pressure is needed. We call on Lim Kaling to stand with the people of Myanmar and persuade RMH Singapore to fully divest from their business with MEHL.

Justice For Myanmar reiterates our call for all businesses to cut ties with the Myanmar military and for the international community to place immediate targeted sanctions on the military regime and their businesses.

Note to editors

Justice For Myanmar, a group of covert activists campaigning for justice and accountability for the people of Myanmar, is calling for an end to military business and for federal democracy and a sustainable peace.
