Kalma and others v African Minerals Ltd and other companies

Tort – Cause of action. The claimant villagers failed in establishing the defendant companies' liability to them for injuries caused by the Sierra Leone police, which included beatings, robbery and sexual assault, inflicted in response to protest against the defendants' infrastructure project. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division held that all the tort claims alleged by the claimants were unsuccessful and dismissed the claims.
