02-06-2016The tour of Europe by Maira Mendez Barbosa, who represents victims of serious human rights abuses in the mining region of Cesar in Colombia, has delivered an encouraging result. The head of the Italian energy company ENEL has said that he is fed up with the unresolved human rights issues. The Italians will send their own investigation team to Colombia. Depending on the outcome of that investigation, ENEL may conditionally suspend purchases of coal from the mining companies Drummond and Prodeco/Glencore.
