Vedanta Resources plc has been pummelled by numerous critics over recent years, not least by non-governmental organisation in the United Kingdom. That’s surely appropriate, given the company was listed on the London Stock Exchange in December 2003 and is thereby subject to scrutiny and regulation by Britain’s citizenry and government. Indeed, in October 2010, a UK government body itself censured Vedanta for failing in its duty to indigenous communities by flagrantly ignoring OECD guidelines.
