Indigenous Peruvians’ human rights claim: UK High Court rules on dispute over disclosure of documents by mining giant Xstrata

The London High Court gave its ruling on a complaint by 22 indigenous Peruvians concerning disclosure and alleged deletion of documents by Xstrata Tintaya S.A. (Xstrata) (now owned by Glencore). This followed a court hearing on 8 July 2016. The complaint focused on the initial omission to disclose an email from an Xstrata director [Charles Sartain] to its senior South America manager [Jose Marun] which had proposed a “direct, proactive and strong approach” to confront community representatives to whom he referred as “sons of whores”.
