Early Day Motion

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.

  1. Hi Richard

    Thanks for reporting this, thanks for the tweet and for letting me know which Act of Parliament I was using!

    I have a separate post – coming sometime in the next few days – which is totally unrelated to issues we normally write about.

    If you are OK with my post – when it arrives – I’d appreciate a tweet to publicise it.

    If you visit my blog you’ll probably see what the subject is but I have a blitzing post to write on the subject first.
