NEW YORK: A February date has been set for a trial of claims that Royal Dutch Shell PLC was complicit in decisions by Nigeria’s military government to hang oil industry opponents. Playwright Ken Sara-Wiwa and eight other oil industry opponents were executed in November 1995, after a military tribunal convicted them of murdering four political rivals. Their heirs filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan the next year.

Shell was once a major driller in Nigeria’s oil-rich Ogoni region. The lawsuit alleged Shell made payments and provided arms to security forces that it knew was abusive to local communities.

A Shell lawyer said at a hearing Tuesday that the plaintiffs have never identified anyone with personal knowledge of the allegations in the lawsuit.

New York, October 8, 2008 — Yesterday, Judge Kimba Wood of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York set a trial date of February 9, 2009 for a human rights and racketeering case against the Royal Dutch Shell company (Shell) and the head of its Nigerian operation, Brian Anderson. The case was first filed in 1996. The judge rejected Shell’s attempt to file additional legal motions to postpone a trial date.

“We are looking forward to finally bringing Shell into court, where we will prove their role in the torture and murder of our clients and their pattern of human rights abuses,” said CCR attorney Jennie Green. “It’s time for our clients and their families to see justice.” read more
