Mexico: Indigenous communities resisting highway construction accuse police & Grupo Higa of illegally destroying their property & displacing them

On April, policemen destroyed the property of those opposing to the construction of a highway from Naucalpan to Toluca commissioned to Constructora Teya, part of Grupo Higa. The indigenous communities had rulings ordering the suspension of the road due to the lack of consultation of the project.

Business and Human Rights Resource Centre invited Grupo Higa to respond; the company did not reply.
