Gemfields Ltd Mozambique

Leigh Day represented 273 Mozambicans who allege that they were the victims of serious human rights abuses at a ruby mine in Northern Mozambique. The claimants filed their case against Gemfields Limited in the High Court in London in April 2018. In January 2019, the parties agreed to settle the claims, which resulted in compensation for each of the claimants and the establishment of a community project for the residents of Ntoro community.   
 
As part of the settlement, Gemfields has also agreed to establish an independent Operational Grievance Mechanism to ensure that any individual who wishes to raise a grievance in relation to the mine is able to obtain appropriate remedy promptly. The implementation of the Grievance Mechanism will be overseen by international experts.
