Trafigura: Still Waiting to Hear

Last Thursday I posted,

“I came across an interesting but old - new to me though - story involving Trafigura about which I intend to post next Wednesday.  The delay is to allow Trafigura an opportunity to comment.”

I haven’t heard yet from Trafigura despite a follow-up message and, therefore, it looks very much as though I’ll be posting without any comment from them.

Beyond this post I’m still working on “Confusions and Questions” and on a few interesting snippets I’ve come across recently.  Some may become posts in their own right when I’ve had the opportunity to delve further.

Time will tell!

    You may have seen that Caroline Lucas has put up this Early |Day Motion:
    EDM 118

    TRAFIGURA AND SHIPPING HAZARDOUS WASTE TO THE IVORY COAST

    27.05.2010

    Lucas, Caroline

    That this House, concerned that due to the start of fresh legal proceedings in the Netherlands on 14 and 17 May 2010 concerning the multinational commodities trading group Trafigura, including allegations that UK nationals and UK firms may have been involved in illegal waste shipments and a subsequent cover-up and that payments were made to truck drivers in return for favourable witness statements and given that this is not being fully reported in the United Kingdom because of the chilling effect of the UK's libel laws, calls on the Government to launch a full inquiry into the allegations against Trafigura and to review the libel laws to ensure that this matter can be reported fully in the UK.

    Cheers
    Richard
