'Trafigura paid drivers to lie about Probo Koala waste', says Volkskrant

Amsterdam-based oil trader Trafigura bribed nine Ivory Coast lorry drivers to make false statements about the dumping of chemical waste from the ship Probo Koala, the Volkskrant and tv programme Nova claim. The drivers say they were paid almost €3,000 each to make statements in which they said the waste was not dangerous to their health, the paper states. Now…Greenpeace has made a formal complaint to the public prosecution department in Rotterdam…In a statement, Trafigura strongly denies offering the drivers money and says the claims are 'dishonest and malicious'. But the company's law firm does say some drivers were paid expenses.
