Statement by Ecuadorian Plaintiffs on Judgment Against Chevron

See all tags
Pablo Fajardo, the lead Ecuadorian attorney representing the indigenous tribes suing Chevron for oil contamination, released this statement today about the judgment against Chevron…: "We believe today's judgment affirms what the plaintiffs have contended for the past 18 years about Chevron's intentional and unlawful contamination of Ecuador's rainforest. Until we have had a chance to review the lengthy decision, we will not be able to comment in detail…We call on the company to end its polemical attacks and search jointly with the plaintiffs for common solutions. We believe the evidence before the court deserves international respect and the plaintiffs will take whatever actions are appropriate consistent with the law to press the claims to a final conclusion."
