USA: Authorities must promptly implement UN decision and release Steven Donziger

Index Number: AMR 51/4814/2021

The US authorities must promptly implement the decision by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention calling for the immediate release of Steven Donziger. Steven Donziger was one of the main lawyers representing victims of oil dumping in an emblematic case against Chevron Corporation in Ecuador, following accusations that the corporation was responsible for what is widely considered one of the worst oil-related environmental disasters in contemporary history. He has been under pre-trial house arrest since August 2019 after he refused to comply with a court order to hand over his electronic devices.
