Peru invites UN and IACHR specialists to visit the sites of oil spills
27 November 2016
Justice Minister Marisol Pérez Tello revealed in a radio interview for IdeeleRadio that the government has extended an official invitation to the UN Special Rapporteur on Toxic Waste, Baskut Tuncak, and to representatives of the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights (IACHR), to visit the sites of the oil spills in the Amazon.
During the 158th Period of Sessions of the Inter-American Commission held in June, the government had invited the Commission to visit the country, but civil society organizations had insisted that it was important this invitation made by the new government. Pérez Tello’s words are certainly a welcome step. http://www.perusupportgroup.org.uk/news-article-1129.html
