Colombia: Report by NGO PAX alleges that Drummond, Prodeco (part of Glencore) supported right-wing paramilitaries

In March 2014 (updated June 2014), The Netherlands’ based NGO PAX issued the report, “The Dark Side of Coal: Paramilitary Violence in the Mining Region of Cesar, Colombia”. The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the US-based company Drummond and Switzerland-based Glencore/Prodeco to respond to this report and two press articles that appeared in the Colombian Semana magazine and El Espectador newspaper.

Drummond and Glencore responded. You can find the responses below; Drummond response in English is an annex of the PAX report.
