Anglo American takes ISDS case against the Colombian Government

Anglo American sued Colombia over a Colombian Constitutional Court decision that prevented Cerrejon Coal from mining under the course of the Bruno Stream, an important tributary of the Rio Rancheria, the only major river in the dry province of La Guajira. It used the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions of the UK-Colombia Bilateral Investment Treaty. A further court decision in March 2022 allowed mining to go ahead and Anglo American said it was reviewing its ISDS case.
