[PDF] International Corporate Accountability Roundtable coalition statement regarding Anvil Mining lawsuit in Canada

The International Corporate Accountability Roundtable is a coalition of 15 leading human rights organizations working to identify and promote robust frameworks for corporate accountability, strengthen current measures and defend existing laws, policies and legal precedents. We issue this statement expressing our disappointment and concern about the decision made by the Quebec Court of Appeal on January 24th, 2012 to overturn the lower court's findings in the case against Anvil Mining Limited ("Anvil Mining")...This decision by the Quebec Court of Appeals closes an important avenue for redress for victims. This avenue is needed to ensure that human rights are protected and that business actors are held accountable for their impacts. [also refers to MMG Malachite (part of MinMetals Resources Limited)]
