China is the world’s largest emitter of environmental pollution including of greenhouse gases and the exploitation of natural resources around the globe.  Today, the United States again took action by imposing sanctions on the People’s Republic of China (PRC) state-owned Union Development Group, Ltd. (UDG) under Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, for its role in corrupt activities in Cambodia.

中国是世界上最大的环境污染排放国,其污染包括了温室气体以及在全球范围开采自然资源带来的污染。 今天,美国再次采取行动,依据第13818号行政命令(E.O.),对中华人民共和国(PRC)的国有企业-优联发展集团有限公司 (UDG)-实施制裁,该行政命令的构建和实施基于全球马格尼茨基人权责任法案,针对该公司在柬埔寨从事腐败活动的事实。

Today’s action demonstrates how the Chinese Communist Party coopts companies to expand its influence, including by working through corrupt officials to use military force against innocent people in a blatant attempt to secure illicit financial gains.  There are credible reports that the coastal development project at Dara Sakor could be used to host PRC military assets, and if so would go against Cambodia’s Constitution and could threaten Indo-Pacific stability, possibly impacting Cambodia’s sovereignty and the security of our allies.

今天的行动印证了中国共产党是如何通过收买当地公司以扩大其影响力,包括通过与腐败官员合作来对无辜民众使用武力,公然试图获取非法经济利益。可信的报告表明,七星海 (Dara Sakor) 的沿海开发项目可能被用于托管中国的军事资产,此种做法会违反柬埔寨的宪法,并可能给印度洋-太平洋地区的稳定带来威胁,可能会影响到柬埔寨的主权和我们盟友的安全。

The government of Cambodia granted UDG a 99-year lease in 2008 for the development of the Dara Sakor project on a site that encompasses almost 20 percent of the country’s coastline. UDG was founded as a wholly-owned PRC corporation, but became a Cambodian enterprise in order to receive the lease for nearly 90,000 acres of land.  The company then went back to being PRC-owned after acquisition of the lease and resulting land.

柬埔寨政府于2008年授予优联发展集团有限公司一份99年的租赁合约,用于开发七星海项目,该项目覆盖了柬埔寨近20%的海岸线。优联发展集团有限公司本是中国国有企业,但为了获得近9万英亩土地的租赁权,它变成了一家柬埔寨企业。在取得租约和相应的土地后,该公司又恢复为中国国有企业性质。

In conjunction with a former Cambodian Army official, the Cambodian military cleared the leased land by force using violent tactics. Then Royal Cambodian Armed Forces chief of staff, Kun Kim (Kim), reaped significant financial benefit from this relationship with UDG.  Kim was previously designated by the United States for his role in corruption under the Global Magnitsky sanctions program in December 2019.  The land in question is also considered part of Botum Sakor National Park, a protected natural area.

柬埔寨军方与一名前柬埔寨军官合作,使用暴力手段强行清理租赁的土地。时任柬埔寨皇家武装部队参谋长的金昆 (Kim) 从与优联发展集团有限公司的交易中攫取了巨额经济利益。 此前,Kim已经因其腐败行为,于2019年12月被美国依据全球马格尼茨基制裁项目予以制裁。 该片争议土地同时被认为是波洞沙果 (Botum Sakor) 国家公园的一部分,属于自然保护区。

The United States stands with the Cambodian people and calls on the world to join us in condemning corruption and environmental degradation.

美国与柬埔寨人民站在一起,并呼吁全世界加入我们,共同谴责腐败和导致环境恶化的行为。
