CHRAJ indicts mining companies of human rights abuses [Ghana]

The Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has pronounced mining companies in Ghana guilty of various forms of human rights abuses in their host communities....In a draft investigative report into the state of human rights in mining communities, CHRAJ indicates that its findings revealed evidence of widespread violations of human rights of individuals and communities in which they operate...[including] pollution of water sources, deprivation, loss of livelihoods, health problems, use of both state and private security to torture community members and inadequate compensation.
