Papers prove Trafigura ship dumped toxic waste in Ivory Coast [UK]

Documents have emerged which detail…the potentially lethal nature of toxic waste dumped by British-based oil traders…Trafigura…originally issued statements in 2006 denying the tanker was carrying toxic waste…It was put by the Guardian to Trafigura's lawyers…that the company had been making wrong statements about the toxic waste…They issued a statement…saying: "We have no intention of descending into a detailed debate as to the chemical composition of the 'slops'."…Trafigura has currently offered to pay anyone from Ivory Coast who can prove the toxic waste actually caused them to fall ill. The claimants' lawyer, Martyn Day…says this concession will prevent the evidence detailing the true history…from coming out in court.
