International organizations welcome the World Bank Ombudsman´s initiative to scrutinize an investment project of the International Finance Corporation due to allegations of human rights violations of peasant communities in the Lower Aguán valley, Honduras, and demand immediate halt to the project.
The undersigning international human rights organizations and civil society networks welcome the initiative of the Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) to audit the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) $30 million investment (project 27250) in the Honduran Corporación Dinant, to expand oil palm plantations in the Aguán valley. The audit was triggered when affected communities and human rights organizations denounced human rights violations and alleged that IFC’s client may have conducted, facilitated, and supported forced evictions of peasants in the Aguán valley through inappropriate uses of force by the public and private security forces under the control or influence of Dinant.1 Between 27 February and 8 March 2013, a group of experts from the CAO are holding a meeting in Washington, D.C. to assess the case.2
