Letter referencing note from the University of Texas School of Law Human Rights Clinic
MetadataShow full item record
It is unclear who this short letter was sent to. It is signed by Dr. Pablo M. Menendez, Director General of Coordination, Administration, and Dispatch at the Ministry of Production of the Government of the Province of Jujuy. At the top of the page the letter makes reference to (translated): “Note from the Human Rights Clinic – University of Texas at Austin – Dated March 9, 2011 – Environmental contamination ex-foundry Metalhuasi.” The letter seems to be a cover letter as Menendez, by the order of Walter Diaz Benetti, forwards the note from the Human Rights Clinic to the Secretary of Environmental Management, saying that the note falls within his responsibilities. The letter also suggests that the Legal Counsel of the Ministry of Production agrees that the letter should be forwarded. It is stamped by the Secretary of Environmental Management and, at the bottom, includes a handwritten number 4249305 and the names “Viviana or Silvia”. A post-it note on the original document reads, in Spanish, "given by the Minister of Production, April 13, 2011".
