Allegations concerning the inadequate response to the contamination and poisoning of the environment and citizens in Piquiá de Baixo, Açailândia, Maranhão State, Amazon Region, in follow-up to the Government’s response to the previous communication of 5 November 2014. According to the information received, the Government has failed to activate previously formulated plans to resettle the population affected by the contamination in Piquiá de Baixo, caused by the iron and steel industry operating in the region, and to disburse the resources that would prevent, inter alia, aggravation of its health impact on the affected families. It is reported that residents continue to suffer from pollution despite the instalment of filters by the steel companies and that access to healthcare facilities for the affected victims remains inadequate. The previous communication was sent on 9 January 2014, see A/HRC/29/50, case no. BRA 6/2013.
