Antoni Pigrau a jurist on the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal

Antoni Pigrau, ICIP board member and Professor of Public International Law and International Relations at the URV, participated as a jurist on the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal in the session on the Canadian mining industry, which took place from May 29 to June 1 in Montreal.

This was the 40th session of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT), a court founded in Italy in 1979 by the lawyer and senator Lelio Basso. In this session, some fifteen victims and experts from Latin America denounced, before a panel of jurists consisting of public figures from various countries, the human rights violations and environmental damage caused by Canadian mining companies supported by the government of Canada.
