Angelica Choc announces lawsuit brought in Canadian courts against HudBay Minerals Inc.

As appears in: http://www.chocversushudbay.com/

 

On September 27, 2009, Adolfo Ich Chamán, a respected indigenous
Mayan Q’eqchi’ community leader and an outspoken critic of harms and
rights violations caused by Canadian mining activities in his
community, was hacked and shot to death by security forces employed at
HudBay Minerals’ Fenix Mining Project near the town of El Estor,
Guatemala.

Adolfo’s family has brought a lawsuit in Canadian courts to seek
accountability for his death.  The lawsuit is brought against Canadian
companies HudBay Minerals Inc. and HMI Nickel Inc., as well as their
Guatemalan subsidiary, Compañia Guatemalteca de Niquel (“CGN”).
