Complaint

IAM: Compliance Advisor/Ombudsman (CAO)

ID: 1269

Date Filed: Feb. 16, 2018

Status: Active

Description

In February 2018, CAO received a complaint from the “Mouvement Martin Luther King – La voix des sans voix”. The complaint was signed by six affected individuals, who belong to a group of former sand miners and market gardeners. The complainants claim LCT’s operations are negatively impacting them, and a larger group of people.

The complainants allege that LCT has not respected its commitments in relation to the project’s Resettlement Action Plan (RAP), particularly with regards to affected groups of market gardeners and sand miners. They claim that the execution of the RAP did not respect the frameworks of the World Bank Group, or the other national and international legal frameworks, including the Togolese Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The complainants further claim that the project has impoverished surrounding communities, and raise concerns regarding ambient pollution and health impacts to “marine sand drippers”, who worked on the site. The complaint also raises labor concerns, in particular with regard to hiring practices, dismissals, and wages of lashing operations personnel (“Lashingmen”).
