On Tuesday Prime Minister Oscar Valdes said the Peruvian government would pay close attention to details of the restructuring process of Doe Run Peru, in order to safeguard the environment.
"The issue of Doe Run is a very complicated issue. It is a company that has sued Peru before the ICSID [International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes], and has a problem in court for crimes against humanity for the lives of 100 children and those are things we can not ignore, that has to be on the negotiating table, "he said.
"The environmental issue in La Oroya is something that we will not allow to become polluted,” Valdes said according to El Comercio.
“We will not allow the further poisoning of Peruvians […],” he said.
Valdes said the government would be very attentive to the restructuring process, in order to ensure environmental protection.
"We will do things in great detail so as to protect the environment, take care of Peruvians’ health, and the interests of Peruvians."
