Ecuador President Suggests Mediation Possible In Chevron Case

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa said the government will remain at arm's length from a lawsuit that Ecuadorian Indians are involved in with Chevron Corp but left open the possibility that he could serve as a mediator... He added: "If we meet with Chevron, we will meet also with the Frente de Defensa de la Amazonia [which coordinates the lawsuit against Chevron]. If we can help, it will be based on justice, not on power."… The lawsuit alleges that contamination in the Amazon region was caused by Texaco, which Chevron acquired in 2001… The company had denied the allegations and said that it spent about $40 million meeting all requirements for the environmental cleanup... [also refers to Petroecuador]
