Survival International

Troubles mount for Vedanta – OECD accepts Survival complaint as chairman faces fraud inquiry

UK mining giant Vedanta Resources was dealt a double blow today as the OECD agreed that all the complaints made by Survival about the company’s planned bauxite mine in Orissa merit further consideration, and Indian police investigate fraud allegations against the company’s billionaire chairman Anil Agarwal…Survival has submitted a complaint that Vedanta is pushing ahead with a massive bauxite mine in Orissa on the land of the remote Dongria Kondh tribe even though they have never been consulted, and will be destroyed by it. Vedanta sought to have the complaint thrown out, but the OECD’s ‘UK National Contact Point’ has now accepted that there is a case to answer.
