Our Embassy in Lima is monitoring the case closely. We call on the Peruvian authorities to ensure a prompt and thorough investigation into the circumstances of Mr Tarrillo's death and ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.

We take environmental protection seriously and have raised environmental policy and human rights issues with the Peruvian Ministers of Environment, Culture, and Energy & Mining.
