Belgium to reopen rights probe on Total in Myanmar

Belgium is set to reopen an investigation into alleged crimes against humanity committed by French oil giant Total in Myanmar following a court ruling, the plaintiff's lawyer said on Thursday. The probe is the first to involve a company rather than an individual under a controversial human rights law claiming universal jurisdiction... Total spokesman Philippe Gateau said the company would review the tribunal's ruling before making a comment. [also refers to Unocal, ChevronTexaco]
