YANGON - German sportswear brand Jako has announced plans to withdraw from sourcing in Myanmar following the arrest by the military junta of two garment workers at one of its suppliers.

Heiko Rumm, head of purchasing at Jako, told Ecotextile News it had been a difficult decision because of the economic implications for the workers at the Sun Apparel factory in Yangon.

"We have consistently held a critical view of the situation, condemning any form of military violence and oppression. Despite these challenges, we have remained committed to supporting the workers and maintaining our long-term relationships with our partners," he said.
