Shooting Victim Announces Third Human Rights Lawsuit Against HudBay Minerals

"I'll never forget watching the chief of security aim his gun straight at me, feeling the bullet hit, lying on the ground coughing up blood. I was terrified. I thought I was going to die," said German Chub, survivor of a brutal shooting at a Canadian mine in Guatemala. "I'm in a wheelchair because of a Canadian mining company. They ruined my life". Canadian lawyers for Mr. German Chub Choc announced...an Ontario lawsuit against Canadian mining company HudBay Minerals over a brutal shooting in Guatemala two years ago that left Mr. Chub a paraplegic. This is the third human rights lawsuit launched in Ontario against HudBay related to violence at its formerly-owned Fenix Mining Project in eastern Guatemala...The claim represents assertions that have not yet been proven in court. The defendants will have the opportunity to respond in these proceedings.
