Whistle Blowing Procedure

The Dagon Group has an established Code of Ethics, which sets out the standards of conduct expected in the management of its business. All employees or third party contractors who are related in term of businesses with Dagon Group are expected to carry out their duties in a manner that is consistent with the Code. As a conscious and vigilant organization, Dagon Group Limited believes in the conduct of the affairs of its constituents in a fair and transparent manner, by adopting the highest standards of professionalism, honesty, integrity and ethical behavior. When employees or others above mentioned third parties become aware of circumstances, which are not in compliance with the Code, then they should communicate their suspicions using the “whistle blowing” policy explained below.

 

Whistle blowing Definition

The term “whistle blowing” is most commonly used to describe when an employee (or ex employee) discloses wrongdoing within an organization. Such wrongdoing can include unlawful conduct, financial malpractice or dangers to the public or the environment. Public disclosure of confidential information about an organization could clearly be a breach of an employee’s contract, therefore special arrangements are needed to protect both the employee and the organization. It is important that the employee’s concerns about illegal or unethical activities can be raised without fear of victimization and that the organization is alerted to malpractice early so that it can be stopped and the perpetrators dealt with.

A whistle blowing procedure allows employees to raise concerns with management about the conduct of others that they consider to be in some way damaging to the organization or others within it.

 

Coverage of Policy

The Policy covers malpractices and events, which have taken place or suspected to take place involving:

  1. Criminal offense
  2. Failure to comply with any legal obligation
  3. A miscarriage of Justice
  4. Negligence causing substantial and specific danger to public health and safety
  5. Damage to Environment
  6. Deliberate improper business conduct
  7. Fraud and Financial Irregularities
  8. Violation of Human Rights
  9. Breach of Employee Code of Conduct or Rules
  10. Any other unethical, biased, favored, irresponsible event

However, it shall not be included to mismanagement, which may arise, from error or incompetence. Nor does it include a personal grievance, which should be pursued through the whistleblower’s line managers in accordance with local grievance procedure.

Procedure to be done if you have a concern about wrongdoing

Possible concern should be raised through line managers. Where it is believed that the line manager is the source of malpractice or that a group of managers are plotting in the malpractice, then the concern should be raised with a relevant divisional Chief Accountant or Directors. In circumstances where Divisional Chief Accountant or Directors are implicated then the issue should be raised to group level. This would usually be to the Chairman of the group or Managing Director or the Dagon Group. However, if you wish to raise the matter with someone independent of line management, contact can be made with either the HR Department or Director of Administration/Finance of Dagon International Limited.

 

Protection for Whistleblower

The Company provides necessary safeguards to all Whistle Blowers for making Protected Disclosure in good faith, in all the areas mentioned in the Coverage of Policy.

The Company agreed to:

No unfair treatment will be meted out to a Whistle Blower by virtue of his/her having reported a Protected Disclosure under this Policy. The Company, as a policy, condemns any kind of discrimination, harassment, victimization or any other unfair employment practice being adopted against Whistle Blower. Complete protection will, therefore, be given to Whistle Blower against any unfair practice like retaliation, threat or intimidation of termination/suspension of service, disciplinary action, transfer, demotion, refusal of promotion, discrimination, any type of harassment, biased behavior or the like including any direct or indirect use of authority to obstruct the Whistle Blower’s right to continue to perform his duties/functions including making further Protected Disclosure. The Company will take steps to minimize difficulties, which the Whistle Blower may experience as a result of making the Protected Disclosure. Thus, if the Whistle Blower is required to give evidence in criminal or disciplinary proceedings, the Company will arrange for the Whistle Blower to receive advice about the procedure, etc.

(2)      We are doing Agriculture Projects based on the under-mentioned  Objectives and Policies:-

  • Basically, our country is an Agriculture Based country and Industrial Sectors are not yet developed due to several constraints. In actual fact, even the agriculture sector is still lagging behind if compared to the neighboring countries like Thailand, China, India, Vietnam. The main reasons of the present position are due to lack of know-how, lack of preparation for proper infrastructure, and last, but not the least is the inability to inject enough sufficient investment to this Agri sector. For this, the Government also could not be able to support to the Agri sector and the farmers which is about 70% of our population. To fill this gap, Government invited us to invest in agriculture sectors and to bring the latest technical know-how, proper land preparation, use of agriculture machineries to turn into manual farming to mechanized farming, etc. By doing so, we will have to educate and prove the farmers to increase their production and at later stage, to improve their living standard accordingly. With this motive, and with the encouragement of the Government, our company become participated in Agri-sector of Myanmar.
  • When we are going to start one Agri-project, we have to secure the land. In this concern, the policy we always keep is that we never tried to ask a particular land from government. Instead, we just choosed the land which is already defined/ earmarked for project by the government.
  • We never take over the farm / the land in which the farmers are doing cultivation. We will take only un-used land in which we will need to develop or prepare to cultivable land by our own effort and investment.
  • Even that, there can be some farmers who are doing a few acres inside the project area, we plan to arrange with them by using one of the following options :-
    1. We will negotiate to buy their land at the prevailing market land price of that area.
    2. In case, they still want to do farming, we will buy the suitable plot of land/farm nearby the village which they proposed to us to substitute to them.
    3. If they (and their family members) want to work at our project, we are ready to accept/ appoint them as our agriculture staff and labour depending on their education and experience background.
    4. We also invite them to do contract farming with us if they wish to do so.
    5. Even then, if the farmers are still rejecting to accept the above options, we will return the land to them (farmers).
  • Moreover, we are ready to surrender to the government for some area which we are not still developed yet and if somebody, private or company, want to do agri-project properly. (According to the existing regulation, project land cannot transferred directly to any organization and only need to return back to government. Only then, concerning government body will decide to whom the land should be re-allocated).

  6. taking into account the reason for the gift, it is of an appropriate type and value and given at an appropriate time; and
  7. it is given openly, not secretly.

Gifts should not be offered to, or accepted from, government officials or representatives, or politicians or political parties, without the prior approval of the Compliance Officer and/or Group Managing Director

DAGON INTERNATIONAL LTD appreciates that the market practice of giving business gifts varies between countries and regions and what may be normal and acceptable in one region may not be in another. The test to be applied is whether in all the circumstances the gift or hospitality is reasonable and justifiable. The intention behind the gift should always be considered.

It is not acceptable for an individual (or someone on his or her behalf) to:

  1. give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality with the expectation or hope that a business advantage will be received, or to reward a business advantage already given;
  2. give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality to a government official, agent or representative to “facilitate” or expedite a routine procedure;
  3. accept payment from a third party that you know or suspect is offered with the expectation that it will obtain a business advantage for them;
  4. accept a gift or hospitality from a third party if you know or suspect that it is offered or provided with an expectation that a business advantage will be provided by us in return;
  5. threaten or retaliate against another worker who has refused to commit a bribery offence or who has raised concerns under this policy; or
  6. engage in any activity that might lead to a breach of this policy.

DAGON INTERNATIONAL LTD only makes charitable donations that are legal and ethical under Myanmar laws and practices. No donation must be offered or made without the prior approval of the CSR Committee and the Managing Director.

The prevention, detection and reporting of bribery and other forms of corruption are the responsibility of all those working for DAGON INTERNATIONAL LTD or under the Company’s control. As such, every staff at DAGON INTERNATIONAL LTD must ensure that he or she reads, understands and complies with this policy and must notify the Compliance Officer as soon as possible if believed or suspected that a conflict with this policy has occurred, or may occur in the future.

Any employee who breaches this policy will face disciplinary action, which could even result in dismissal for gross misconduct.

Training on this policy forms part of the induction process for all new employees and other workers. All existing employees and workers will receive regular, relevant training on how to implement and adhere to this policy. The Company’s strict approach to bribery and corruption must be communicated to all suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of its business relationship with them and as appropriate thereafter.

The board of directors has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with DAGON INTERNATIONAL LTD’s legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under the Company’s control comply with it. Comments, suggestions and queries should be addressed to the Compliance Office or to Managing Director.
