THE REJECTION OF THE APPEAL FOR ANNULMENT DOES NOT IMPLY THE END OF THE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE CHAUPE FAMILY
Despite the notification received today by the company, the rejection will be reviewed by the Supreme Court of Justice.
Yanacocha received today a notification from the Criminal Court of Appeals of the Superior Court of Cajamarca. It declares inadmissible the appeal for annulment filed by the company against the judgment issued by the referred Court in the suit being pursued against the Chaupe family for misappropriation of land owned by the company. Despite the current attempts to provide misleading information on the end of this legal action, it is not over.
Minera Yanacocha considers that the declaration of inadmissibility of the appeal for annulment filed against the judgment issued by referred Criminal Court does not conform to law.
For this reason, as permitted by law, Minera Yanacocha will file a complaint appeal directly with the Supreme Court of Justice against the decision issued by the Criminal Court of Appeals of the Superior Court of Cajamarca.
It should be recalled and reiterated that the judgment issued by the Criminal Court of Cajamarca did not declare any right in favor of the Chaupe family in connection with the ownership of the misappropriated land, which is still being misinformed to the media and in social networks by people close to the family.
