India: Open letter to India’s Minister of Environment and Forests not to allow expansion of Vedanta Aluminium refinery until human rights abuses faced by local communities are fully addressed
In this open letter, Amnesty International urges the Minister to ensure that the public hearing on plans by the company, Vedanta Aluminium, for the six-fold expansion of its alumina refinery at Lanjigarh is postponed until existing concerns are addressed. Amnesty International is gravely concerned by the evidence that – far from addressing the negative human rights impact of the existing refinery – the government of Orissa and Vedanta Aluminium appear to be continuing with practices that breach international and national laws and standards.
