Dole and Del Monte face charges in Colombia

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Colombia’s prosecution is set to charge almost 200 companies, including multinationals like Dole and Del Monte, for financing death squads in the banana-growing region of the country, according to Blu Radio.

The radio station reported contents of the alleged set of indictments a day after the country’s chief prosecutor announced his office would charge companies for crimes against humanity for their alleged voluntary support for the paramilitary death squads. Among the companies facing crimes against humanity charges is Chiquita’s subsidiary.
