Trafigura director can be prosecuted says Dutch court

A Dutch court ruled…Trafigura’s French co-founder could be prosecuted for illegal export of toxic waste, later dumped in Ivory Coast after a stopover in the Netherlands…"The Amsterdam Appeals Court decided…Trafigura director Claude Dauphin…is alleged to have led the…illegal export of waste by Trafigura.”…[The court] upheld a million-euro fine against Trafigura for violating EU laws on the import and export of toxic waste…Trafigura…denies any link between the waste and subsequent deaths…But a United Nations report published in September 2009 found “strong” evidence blaming the waste for at least 15 deaths and several hospitalisations…The dumping caused 17 deaths and thousands of cases of poisoning, Ivorian judges said.
