DEFENDING El Salvador's AMAZON
The right of a Nation to protect their clean water against these men
The people and government of
Australia | New Zealand | Canada
decision makers & beneficiaries
A new SQP-ICC International Criminal Court case submission, accuses James Askew, Michael Wilkes, J. Denham Shale, Jose Leviste Jr., William Myckatyn and Dr Geoff Raby, as directing decision makers of a gold mining company OceanaGold. These men are currently suing the government of El Salvador for US 301 million because the government of El Salvador, in hope to their protect people & land from devastation, have REFUSED to grant permission for new OceanaGold mines, on the basis that this gold-mine will contaminate El Salvador's water & soil.
"If El Salvador loses the case, then the World Bank can enforce the payment of the settlement by seizing the country's assets, including aid, development or disaster relief funds destined for the country and use those funds to pay OceanaGold." Attempting to steal US 301 million off El Salvador equates to half of the entire government budget that provides health care, education and basic human rights like clean water for their citizens.
The SQP-ICC submission to the International Criminal Court
The project will contaminate the Lempa River, which provides water for two thirds of the population of El Salvador. This contamination is scientifically calculated to bring about the physical destruction of the nation's population including forecasts of illness, disease and death. This will affect up to two thirds of El Salvadorian people, including arsenic and cyanide poisoning. Their country has already been so contaminated by dirty industry so devastating, that barely 2% of their water remains of drinkable quality.
A series of violent methods of intimidation have been advanced to eliminate opposition to this mine, with cases of kidnapping, torture and murder inflicted upon leading activists against the mine; including Dora Sorto, an eight month pregnant mother and anti-mining activist, who was killed with a high power rifle while getting water from a community well. Her two-year-old son was injured in the attack."
A commitment to balance
The SQP-ICC argument. A national judicial system 'unable' to protect.
The SQP-ICC context through the International Criminal Court is the only international legal remedy which can bring the individual decision makers to trial and order direct and personal penalities against the decision makers, of up to 30 years to life inprisonment; along with serious financial and asset foreitures and orders to halt the development harm.
In this case, the country of El Salvador is not yet a party to the Rome Statute, but the
SQP-ICC context would provide a compelling reason to urgently become so and push for the court to treat this case with priority. However, the perpetrators of the crime each belong to countries who've ratified the Rome Statute into law, including New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the Phillipines.
The human rights tribunal trial submission to Geneva will be of value to the SQP-ICC case, however, like the IAHRC issuing precautionary measures, the Human rights commision relies on the voluntary ethical compliance by the criminal parties but cannot enforce direct penalities, nor does it have any power to enforce court orders to stop the dirty industry development or unethical court action against an entire nation; as the ICC can and does.
The SQP-ICC legal context is an excellent opportunity for the International Criminal Court to assume jurisdiction on this Victory Amazon case, as the El Savadorian Government are itself a victim and much as the people, who find their judicial system, unable to protect their own ethical, quality decision to protect life in priority to profit.
Thus deliberately attempting to inflict conditions of life upon a national group, which is calculated [ by scientific & economic forecasts ] to bring about the physical destruction of the national group of El Salvador, in whole or in part; where the decision makers manifestly advance this conduct with awareness as knowledge of circumstance and consequence of the harm which their intent and attempt to progress both the gold mining and the law suit against El Salvador, will inflict upon it's people, within the ordinary course of events in their pursuit of profit. [ SQP-ICC Legal Context application of the Rome Statute, governed by the International Criminal Court ]
The attack on the most basic human rights of the entire nation of El Salvador, lead by only six unethical men, stands as a symbol of abhorrent corruption within corporate culture. Such indifference to the rights of life is bringing about the physical destruction of national groups across the world. The directors, beneficiaries and facilitators of OceanaGold's unethical US legal attack on El Salvador, allows them power to manipulate a corrupt trade agreement, in order to steal from a nation of people, their clean water and half the entire annual country budget, both of which support life. The intent and attempt of these men deliberately forcing such harm on a nation of people, is not only manifestly criminal but demonstrates a system that is out of control and for which the current remedies to end climate change, will not prevent.
