Halt threats to Costa Rica, Canadians tell Infinito

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Seven Canadian organizations sent a strongly worded letter to chief executive John Morgan of Canadian mining company Infinito Gold, demanding that the company “end its decade-long harassment of the people and the government of Costa Rica.”

The letter also called on Infinito to withdraw its April 4 threat to sue Costa Rica for $1 billion if it is not allowed to build its Crucitas open-pit gold mine.

“Infinito Gold has tried to portray itself as the victim of a capricious court system. In reality, the Calgary-based company has tried to strong-arm Costa Rica’s judiciary," the letter said.
