Last weekend marked the anniversary of meetings between officials from oil giant Shell that led to alleged human rights abuses at issue in a landmark Supreme Court case known as Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum. The Court, considered by many to be the most corporate-friendly Supreme Court in history, could issue a decision as early as Tuesday as to whether Shell — or any company — can be held legally accountable for torture, extrajudicial execution, and crimes against humanity. Shell’s position is sweeping and bold: Let us make over $30 billion off communities’ and their homelands, but leave us off the hook when these operations lead to gross human rights abuses. read more

Dow Jones Newswires: Published February 25, 2013

Spain’s Repsol SA may announce this week the sale of several of its liquefied natural gas assets to Royal Dutch Shell PLC for a total between 1.50 billion euros ($1.98 billion) and EUR1.7 billion, reports Expansion, citing financial sources.
