Japanese beer corporation Kirin has said that an assessment of its ties with the Myanmar military was “inconclusive” as to the company’s role in human rights abuses and military operations.

Burma Campaign UK and other rights groups have expressed disappointment in Kirin’s announcement. 

“Kirin are making themselves look ridiculous trying to claim they can’t find out if the Burmese military uses its money for military purposes,” said Burma Campaign UK Director Mark Farmaner.

Kirin remains on BCUK’s Dirty List.
