Swiss prosecutors close Colombian widow's case against Nestle

Swiss prosecutors…closed a lawsuit by a Colombian woman accusing Swiss food giant Nestle of indirect responsibility for the murder of her union-worker husband. The woman had filed her suit on March 5, 2012, charging that Nestle and its leadership were indirectly responsible for the murder of her husband, Luciano Romero, in September 2005 by paramilitary forces in Valledupar, Colombia. Romero, a trade unionist who had long worked for Cicolac, a subsidiary of Nestle in Colombia, had left the company several years before he was killed…Franz Moos, the deputy prosecutor in the canton, told AFP that the statute of limitation for such cases was seven years, and that the period in this case had therefore ended last September.
