Binding Treaty Demand #5: an International Court for Transnationals
Impunity prevails with transnational corporations (TNCs) that systematically violate human rights. We need an international treaty to ensure that communities affected by TNC crimes have access to justice.
Pablo Fajardo from the Union of Affected by Chevron-Texaco (UDAPT) in Ecuador explains why an International Court strong and capable to judge TNCs has to be included in the currently discussed UN Binding Treaty on Transnational Corporations and Human Rights.
In the Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity we have always stressed the importance of focussing on holding transnational corporations accountable for human rights violations.
