The Embassy of the State of Eritrea to the United Kingdom & Ireland hosted a reception event of presentation by Mr. Todd Romaine, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility ( CSR ) of Nevsun and Mr. Lloyd Lipsett, an international human rights lawyer on the human rights impact on Eritrea and particularly the Bisha mine. Ms. Ruby Sandu, Business & Human Rights Lawyer, stressed on the importance of setting a benchmark for future mining operations as a precedence of corporate social responsibility corporations must undertake. The event was attended by Diplomats, members of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Investors and Media .
The presentation highlighted the extremely flawed methodology conducted by the Commission of Inquiries (COI Eritrea) on their report on Eritrea.
It has been confirmed by Nevsun and third parties that the Eritrean government had already taken steps to ensure the safety and integrity of the mining employees by hiring Colorado School of Mines to assist with the development of mining laws
