"Vedanta to contest UK court pollution ruling", 6 June 2016

Vedanta Resources and its subsidiary, Konkola Copper Mines (KCM), will challenge the jurisdiction of the English court to hear and adjudicate the water pollution claims by Chingola residents in relation to KCM’s operations in Zambia...In a statement posted on the Vedanta website, Vedanta Resources president-group communications and sustainability Roma Balwani said...“This judgment relates solely to the jurisdiction of the English courts to hear these claims. It is not a ruling or a determination on the merits of the claims...Vedanta and KCM are examining the court’s judgment and considering all options, including an appeal of the Court’s decision,”...The villagers allege that their water sources and farming land were contaminated by the copper mining operations of both companies, and that they have suffered continual pollution since 2004, causing them to fall sick and lose their crops.
