The secret pipeline: how Burmese junta is making €1bn a year
A billion euros a year. That's the profit allegedly being made by the Burmese government, to the cost of the Burmese people. The ruling junta's accused of secretly selling the country's oil and natural gas reserves to China via clandestine pipelines. A local NGO says locals are being exploited in the project, which is adding to the fuel shortage that's already taken hold in the capital, Rangoon.
