Nigeria: On trial: Shell in Nigeria: Legal actions against the oil multinational
Shell’s operations in Nigeria are facing scrutiny like never before, with an unprecedented set of legal cases against the oil company in courts in Europe. Each is expected to reach a conclusion, or other important milestone, in 2020. This report provides essential information and analysis of each case and concludes that the Anglo-Dutch corporation has operated in a way that has harmed communities and has not effectively remediated the harm it has caused. The report draws on Amnesty International’s research on the Niger Delta, which dates back more than twenty years.
