Guatemala: NGOs activists called on the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil to suspend membership of groups diminishing the anti-impunity commission

In a commentary published at Mongabay, Doug Hertzler from ActionAid USA and Jeff Conant from Friends of the Earth U.S. called on the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) to suspend membership of Guatemalan business groups such as the Association of Oil Palm Growers in Guatemala (GREPALMA) because of their public declarations undermining Guatemala’s anti-impunity commission and supporting President Jimmy Morales in expelling the Commission from the country. The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre invited both RSPO & GREPALMA to respond; responses are available.
