Head of Corporate Communications at Vedanta, Mr. Pavan Kaushik...says...his company has a "deep respect" for human rights...this will come as news to the Norwegian Council of Ethics...[T]he Supreme Court of India never considered the legal or constitutional rights of the Dongria Kondh, who do not have the resources to litigate against an opponent the size of Vedanta...Mr. Kaushik claims that no Dongria will be displaced...this is not what Vedanta said in its mining plan.
