When LMN member group Colombia Solidarity Campaign made a submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights about London-based Rio Tinto’s association with Muriel Mining Corporation in Colombia, Muriel mining accused the Colombian Interchurch Commission for Justice and Peace (which had provided information for the submission) and international human rights organisation Peace Brigades International (which provides human rights accompaniment for the Commission) of being guerrilla collaborators. Since both organisations are associated with ABColombia, an alliance of British and Irish development and human rights organisations, ABColombia refuted Muriel Mining’s libellous allegations. Now Muriel Mining has responded to ABColombia. For the entire correspendence, see http://www.business-humanrights.org/Documents/MandeNorte.
