Global mining company Vedanta Resources and its Zambian subsidiary Konkola Copper Mines’ (KCM’s) UK court appeal against a decision in favour of 1 826 Zambian villagers is set to get under way next week. High Court Judge Justice Coulson last year ruled that English courts had jurisdiction to hear and adjudicate the 2015 claims of the Zambian residents, which included allegations of personal injury and damage to livelihoods and lands destroyed by pollution from the Nchanga copper mine owned by KCM.
