Ivorian joy at Trafigura ruling

A court in the Ivory Coast has ruled that compensation due to thousands of victims of dumped waste should not be paid to one man to distribute…Trafigura had agreed to pay $45m (£27m) to 30,000 victims in an out-of-court settlement. Claude Gohourou argued he should be given responsibility for the money, but there were doubts he would pass it on. However, despite the ruling the money remains blocked and victims cannot yet gain access to their compensation…[The court] declared its verdict after an hour, saying that Mr Gohourou's organization…had no legal right to freeze the accounts because the association had only just been set up.
