Multinationals ‘on trial’ for mining activities in Colombia

Several multinational companies with activities in Colombia were ‘on trial’ in Madrid last weekend during the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal. Most cases deal with violations of human rights and liability for environmental degradation. They included the three London-listed companies which own the Cerrejon Coal mine: Anglo American, BHP Billiton and Xstrata.
