So. Africa: AngloGold Ashanti response to complaint of poor treatment of former miners

'AngloGold Ashanti response', 21 Jul 2015: AngloGold Ashanti notes the piece in Business Day…Ailing Miners Still Get Shafted…written by the attorneys for plaintiffs in an ongoing litigation regarding occupation lung disease in the mining sector…[which] raised the issue of the accommodation for former miners who had travelled to Carletonville for mutually agreed medical evaluations. Initial accommodation arrangements…for these former miners were not suitable…[F]ormer employees were then moved to local bed & breakfast accommodation…paid for by the company.  The matter was also raised of compensation for temporary accommodation for the spouse of one of these men who received further treatment following his examination. AngloGold Ashanti was not aware of this request and – had it been – would certainly have acceded to that appeal. Our values demand…that we treat all people with dignity and respect…The[se] [values]…are not negotiable. AngloGold Ashanti apologises unreservedly…to our former employees and…their spouses. We have taken…steps to ensure…incidents of this nature do not happen again…
