YANGON - Fashion brands are failing to protect the workers who make their clothes in Myanmar from labour and human rights abuses ranging from inhumane working conditions and wage theft to violence, arbitrary arrest and even murder, according to a new report.

The report from the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC) identifies 198 violations affecting at least 104,000 workers in Myanmar’s garment sector since the military coup in February 2021.

It names leading global brands Inditex, H&M, Bestseller and Primark - which announced plans to withdraw from Myanmar last September following a similar report from the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) - as being linked to the most allegations.
