PHNOM PENH -- Denmark's Bestseller should resume sourcing from Myanmar "as quickly as possible," as the exit of international companies threatens to cause widespread poverty and famine, according to an independent report commissioned by the company.

Bestseller tasked lawyer Jonas Christoffersen, previously the head of Danish Institute for Human Rights, to assess the company's business in Myanmar following the Feb. 1 military coup.
