Complaint

IAM: Independent Complaints Mechanism (ICM)

ID: 21-001

Date Filed: Feb. 25, 2021

Status: Active

Description

The complainants claim that DEG’s client, a commercial bank based in an African country, has financed an open-pit mining company in another African country and that the mining corporation has caused harm to them. They fear that the expansion of the mining operation will cause additional harm. The complainants allege that they have suffered substantial harm from resettlement from the area where the mine was established, from environmental impacts and impacts from river diversion. Allegedly serious harm was caused through the release of harmful chemicals between December 2015 and June 2016. They further claim that, due to an expansion of the mine, their access to farmland has been restricted and that artisanal miners have been told to move or restrict operations without compensation. They are concerned about further harm as the mining company has started to prepare its expansion by construction of a road and of a camp facility without having consulted with the affected communities about potential environmental and social impacts. Complainants particularly fear resettlement and are concerned about the absence of any agreement on resettlement benefits. The complainants have asked for strictly confidential treatment of their case, as they see themselves at risk of reprisals.
