The attached letter from Greenpeace International and BankTrack was sent to the banks listed below on 16th June.

There is growing concern over international finance support for Bumi Resources - the Bakrie family coal mining whose messy "divorce" from Bumi plc - now renamed ARMS - has provided juicy headlines for the business press in recent months.

Re:  urgent action on indigenous peoples rights in Indonesia – your role as co-chairs of the High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post 2015 Development Agenda



Letter to UK press, 31st October 2012
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono visits the UK this week. Indonesia has made strides towards democracy since the 1998 fall of Suharto and UK companies are increasing their investments in its burgeoning market. However human rights violations continue to abound in Papua where the right to freedom of expression is not upheld. Over 60 violations including stabbings and fatal shootings have taken place this year alone.

The letter follows DtE and fellow NGOs' participation in the Indonesia and East Timor Civil Society Human Rights Roundtable (7th February 2012), with the British Ambassador to Indonesia, Mark Canning HMA.
