Interview with lawyer Pedro Rafael Maldonado Flores (CALAS, Guatemala): “What is truly ‘against development’ is not the work of defenders, but corruption and the cooptation of the state”
Author: Karen Hudlet and Ana Zbona, Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC), Apr 2017
Centro de Acción Legal Ambiental y Social de Guatemala (CALAS) works to promote the participation of communities and respect for the collective rights of indigenous peoples, mainly in relation to extractive projects. Yuri Giovanni Melini Salguero is the director of the organization, while Pedro Rafael Maldonado Flores is the legal, political and environmental coordinator. Among other key cases, CALAS supported the plaintiffs in Garcia vs. Tahoe Resources, a Canadian mining company: in an important decision in January 2017, the British Columbia Court of Appeal ruled it had jurisdiction over the claims as it would be difficult for the plaintiffs to have a fair trial in Guatemala. Because of their work, CALAS and its staff have received several threats and attacks in recent years. BHRRC interviewed Pedro Rafael Maldonado Flores on the impact of companies on the safety of human rights defenders (HRDs).
