Nat'l Roundtable Against Mining Press Conference

The National Roundtable Against Mining (Mesa Nacional Frente a la Minería) held a press conference on June 1, 2012 to address the upcoming ruling by the ICSID of the World Bank.  The ICSID ruled that the case would not proceed according to CAFTA-DR.  However, the case will proceed under Salvadoran investment law, which allows the state to be sued by foreign investors.  The final ruling by the tribunal is not expected until mid-2013.  For more information, see the blog post Pac Rim v. El Salvador.
