In 2011, the BHRC submitted an Amicus Curiae (English) to the Colombian Constitutional Court regarding the annulment of the decision taken by Colombia’s Constitutional Court (7-769/2009) in the Muriel Mining Corporation Case. The brief deals with the international jurisprudence regarding the right to consultation and prior informed consent of the communities affected by large scale projects.

See the Amicus Curiae in Spanish.
