#Myanmar #President has set up a committee to investigate the cause of the horrific #Hpakant #Kachin #jade mine landslide that killed more than 160 people. Natural Resources Minister heads the 6-member team that includes Home Affairs & the Kachin Chief Minister ImageImageImage
The team will have to find out who's responsible for the incident on Thursday, how to help the victims affected by the landslide & how to ensure such an incident doesn't happen again. The committee is supposed to provide a report to the President as soon as possible.
@Global_Witness previously released a report estimating the #Myanmar #jade industry is worth at least US$31 billion in 2014 alone. globalwitness.org/jade-story/ It also reacted to the latest #Kachin #jade mine landslide saying it was "entirely preventable"
