Swedish-Canadian Company Criticized

Published tisdag 19 februari 2008 kl 12.10

The Swedish-Canadian Lundin Mining company is being blasted by human rights organizations for its operations in Kongo-Kinsasha - with critics claming that whole villages have been moved away from mining sites.

Bitter residents complain that they were promised a great deal by the company - but that the local population has received no benefits from the operations.

The company argues that this is a misunderstanding, that new housing in on the way, and that a majority of the local residents are in favor of the mines.

Earliers, Lundin Oil operations in Sudan were earlier heavily criticized for wiping out villages, silencing critics and handed over large amounts of money to the regime waging warfare against insurgents.
