Myanmar druglord-tycoon scion, CNOOC partner Steven Law visits Canada

The Irrawaddy reports that Steven Law, also known as U Htun Myint Naing and (under various spellings) Luo Bingzhong 罗秉忠, a Myanmar tycoon under US sanctions due to his link to the former military regime and his father’s heroin business, has been to Canada as part of an official trade delegation.

Western criticism of Mr Law’s background and connections has hardly hampered his congolomerate’s partnership with various Chinese state-owned companies, notably CNOOC, as I took the trouble to expound some time ago (‘The Law of the jungle‘).
