A publicly listed British mining company, which was the source of one of Queen Elizabeth’s most famous diamonds and markets itself as a producer of ethical gems, has been accused of a string of human rights abuses.
Petra Diamonds has been condemned by an activist group which claims that security guards at one of the company’s African mines have killed seven local people and assaulted another 41, leaving many with “life-changing injuries.”
The company has said it is investigating the allegations, made by British NGO Rights and Accountability in Development (RAID).
