"Australian mining company denies role in murder of South African activist", 25 Mar 2016
An Australian-owned mining company has denied any link to the murder of an activist leading a campaign against its plans to mine titanium in South Africa. In a statement, MRC said it was “not in a position to comment with any authority on the incident...but any claims it was in any way implicated were...simply unfounded...it was in no way implicated in any form whatsoever in this incident...Despite our own internal enquiries, we are no further informed as to any of the specific facts surrounding this incident other than what has been reported...The company does not condone violence in any form and it is tragic that a man has lost his life regardless of the circumstances, which … are yet to be established”. MRC’s executive chairman, Mark Caruso, did not respond to specific questions from Guardian Australia.
