Myanmar military jet fuel companies for targeted sanctions

November 3, 2022

The Myanmar military's indiscriminate air strikes are intensifying, enabled by the continued supply of jet fuel. Justice For Myanmar calls for an immediate ban on the export of jet fuel to Myanmar and targeted sanctions against the Myanmar individuals and entities involved in the military’s jet fuel supply chain.

The Excel file below lists entities and individuals that require targeted sanctions for their role in supplying jet fuel to the Myanmar military. The list details the subsidiaries and associated companies of the crony conglomerate Asia Sun Group and known members of the junta-controlled Myanma Petrochemical Enterprise (MPE). Information is largely based on records acquired through Myanmar's Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (DICA).

Asia Sun Group is a local partner of the Myanmar military and is involved in procuring, storing and distributing jet fuel. Asia Sun has been found to import aviation fuel and directly deliver it to the Myanmar military.

MPE, which is under the illegitimate junta's Ministry of Energy and Electricity, controls the jet fuel supply chain in Myanmar.

Evidence of the role of Asia Sun Group and MPE in the Myanmar military's jet fuel supply chain can be found in the Amnesty International report, Deadly Cargo, published with research supported by Justice For Myanmar. The report finds that Asia Sun Group and MPE have contributed to the Myanmar military’s war crimes.

Justice For Myanmar call on Australia, Canada, the EU, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, the UK and the USA to urgently sanction Asia Sun Group and MPE.
