Coup d'Etat To World Trade Seen in Renco's $800 Million Toxic Lead Fight

Credit: Bloomberg / Contributor
Nasira Chavez, an 9-year-old whose blood contained 55 micrograms per deciliter of lead when she was 2 years-old, slides down a pole on a playground in the town of La Oroya, Peru, on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Most of La Oroyaís children suffer elevated lead levels, according to the Peruvian government. The question of responsibility for lead pollution in La Oroya is at the center of high-stakes clash between Peru and U.S. billionaire Ira Rennert, who owned Doe Run Peru for more than a decade through Renco Group Inc., a metals, mining and industrial conglomerate based in New York that has said it is not responsible for the childrenís ills.
