Shell settles with Nigerian tribe

The Ogoni claim victory over the oil giant, although the company insists the $15.5-million award is a humanitarian gesture.

June 13, 2009

After 13 years of litigation, Royal Dutch Shell has agreed to settle with plaintiffs who accused the oil giant of complicity in human rights abuses in Nigeria, the most infamous of which was the execution of prominent playwright, author and environmental activist Ken Saro-Wiwa. A member of the Ogoni tribe, Saro-Wiwa was a vocal critic of Shell and the brutal military government of Gen. Sani Abacha. His eloquence brought international attention to Shell’s questionable environmental practices in the Niger River delta and the government’s lax regulation of environmental laws. read more

HUMAN RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK IN THE NIGER DELTA. AND SHELL WANTS TO WASH ITS HANDS OF ALL RESPONSIBILITY

FROM A SHELL INSIDER (KNOWN TO US)

Dear John

I am sending you the enclosed just in case you haven’t seen it.

For Amnesty to campaign against Shell in this way is, in my opinion, highly significant.

Amnesty is highly respected and immensely careful in what they place in the public domain. They would not do this unless they were 100% sure of their facts.

Amnesty’s story is deeply shocking and it demands the widest possible publicity. And it demands an answer and action from Shell.

Over to you!

Dow Jones Newswires

Tuesday, 13 October 2009 – 14:10

Shell Nigerian onshore oil output heavily down

Reuters

Tue Oct 13, 2009 7:13am EDT

LONDON, Oct 13 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSa.L) onshore oil output in Nigeria has been heavily curtailed by violence, the company’s chief executive said on Tuesday.

“We have a huge proportion of our onshore production shut in at this stage,” Peter Vosel told reporters. “I think we are now at 120,000 barrels per day and we used to be close to 300,000. These are Shell’s share (production).”

Violence in the Niger Delta, where Shell has long been a dominant player, has declined significantly since President Umaru Yar’Adua offered an unconditional pardon to militants in June. Activists say peace will only last if work can be found fast for those who have disarmed. [ID:nL5719632] read more
