Amnesty International has welcomed the decision of a Côte d’Ivoire court not to transfer $45 million in compensation owed to victims of the toxic waste dumping in Abidjan in 2006 to the account of an organization which was falsely claiming to represent all 30,000 of them.
The European Union and India should work together at the United
Nations to protect human rights in places of crisis, Amnesty
International has said in a letter ahead of the EU India summit in New Delhi.
Amnesty International has urged that $45 million compensation paid by an oil trading company to
victims of one of the worst toxic dumping scandals in recent years
must reach the people to whom it is owed.
