Court grants late amendment application to defence in relation to claims brought under Peruvian law


Re: Vilca & Ors v XSTRATA Ltd & Anor [2017] EWHC 2096 (QB)

The defendants applied to amend their defence to plead a limitation defence to claims being brought by the claimants under Peruvian law. These claims arose out of a protest that took place at or near the Tintaya mine in Peru in 2012.

Phillipa Kaufmann QC was involved in this case.
