Sierra Leone Land Rights Defenders say SOCFIN's land acquisition in Malen has resulted in serious conflict with local landowners, who face intimidation and harassment for defending their land rights and challenging the company.
Proponents of land rights in Sierra Leone note with grave concern the human rights violations against members of the Malen Affected Landowners and users Association who were dispossessed of their land by the agro–based multinational SOCFIN.
The communities of the DR Congo want a resolution to a land conflict that dates back to the Belgian colonial period with a palm oil company that is currently being financed by a consortium of European development banks led by DEG.
As ING launches its sustainable investment campaign, a civil society coalition from Belgium and the Netherlands calls upon ING to clean up their act. ING’s financing of controversial palm oil companies such as SOCFIN is far from sustainable.
