Fans Call For Arsenal To End HAGL Association Following Human Rights Accusations

EPL Arsenal fans "have been campaigning to get the club to end its association with a Vietnamese rubber firm which has been accused of human rights abuses," according to the BBC. Campaign group Global Witness claims the HAGL (Hoang Anh Gia Lai) Group "is guilty of land grabbing and human rights abuse in Laos and Cambodia." An online petition set up by an Arsenal fan "has attracted more than 1,600 signatures." Arsenal said: "We have no formal academy partnership with HAGL." Arsenal added, "HAGL were our partners for the game in Hanoi." HAGL has said its business is "fully compliant with local law" (BBC, 8/13).
