Trafigura: BBC Fear of Libel

This morning there is coverage in the UK’s MSM of the trial, in Amsterdam, of Trafigura and others for the illegal exporting of waste.

Jeroen Trommelen, one of the journalists who jointly won the Daniel Pearl Award for Investigative Journalism for the Trafigura “affair”, has an interesting tweet.

“BBC-word (sic) service askes me to comment on Trafigura courtcase. 'But please restrict to what we can say on this, regarding libel.' I said no.”

Fear still rules!
