"Accusations that a ranching company owned by one of Spain’s richest men illegally bulldozed forest inhabited by uncontacted Indians have been upheld by the Paraguayan authorities.

The company, Carlos Casado SA, is owned by Spanish construction and property giant Grupo San José. Jacinto Rey González is President of both companies, and controlling shareholder of Grupo San José.

Earlier this month Survival revealed that Paraguayan authorities had mounted a raid on Carlos Casado’s estate, discovering a huge amount of unauthorised forest clearance."

No matter how rich he is, he should do a long time in prison for what amounts to genocide.

Thanks Cal for the link to the Survival of Tribal Peoples news report on this. The accusations against the company of Mr. Grupo San José has been proven and the company, Carlos Casado SA, along with him should face sanctions and criminal charges for the destruction of parts of the forest that is the habitation of the Ayoreo Indians. Read and noted.

destruction of the habitat is a criminal offence, but genocide of tribal people is a life sentence
