ENRC: OECD complaint

In May 2013, Rights and Accountability in Development (RAID) filed a complaint against ENRC for committing human rights and environmental violations in the DRC village of Kisankala.[1] The village’s only source of clean water has been disrupted for over ten months following a conflict between security guards and miners. Other issues, like the threat of forced eviction and an apparent lack of environmental and social monitoring, are also included in the complaint.[2]
