Complaint

IAM: Compliance Advisor/Ombudsman (CAO)

ID: None

Date Filed: June 30, 2016

Status: Active

Description

In June 2016, CAO received a complaint related to several IFC projects in Uzbekistan. CAO found the complaint eligible in August 2016 in relation to two IFC clients: IKT and Hamkorbank. The complaint was filed by a coalition of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) on behalf of Uzbek human rights monitors and alleged victims of forced labor in the cotton fields (the “Complainants”). The complaint raises concerns about the existence of forced labor in IKT’s supply chain. With regard to Hamkorbank, the complainants state that there is significant risk that Hamkorbank participates in a “coercive financial system and is not conducting adequate due diligence to ensure its participation is not supporting forced labor and the related attacks against independent labor monitors.” The complaint also states that IFC’s investment in Hamkorbank may finance companies that utilize or benefit from forced labor in the cotton system, and that IFC has not fulfilled its due diligence and supervision responsibilities.
