Solway Investment Group mining repression in Guatemala
Arbitrary detention of son of Angelica Choc and the deceased Adolfo Ich Chaman
[link removed]
Arrested (Nov. 2, 2021) in El Estor, Guatemala, was Edgar Geovany Ich Choc, teacher, father of 2 children, and son of Angelica Choc and the late Adolfo Ich (killed Sept.27, 2009 by Mynor Padilla, former security chief of Hudbay Minerals/CGN).

This arbitrary detention occurs during a military state of siege implemented in the mining-affected Maya Q’eqchi’ territories of Guatemala, on behalf of the illegal operation of the ‘Fenix’ nickel mine owned by the Swiss company Solway Investment Group and its subsidiary CGN.
