New Document Alleges Tie Between Chevron and Human Rights Abuses in Nigeria

Identified in the discovery phase of a case proceeding at state and federal levels, the invoice and receipt indicate Chevron paid Nigerian soldiers for services on a day several villagers were allegedly killed... Rick Herz, [a] lawyer [for EarthRights International] representing the plaintiffs [said]..."One thing the invoice shows is that the soldiers were working on Chevron's behalf..." ..."We strongly disagree with the plaintiffs' attorneys' characterization of the receipt," Mr. Moore [Jeff Moore, Chevron spokesperson] told SocialFunds.com. "The receipt reflects a longstanding industry practice of paying a small amount for providing security to people and facilities in the Niger Delta." [also refers to Unocal]
