[video] Trafigura director Pierre Lorinet is interviewed about recent legal developments in the UK

Pierre Lorinet: "Fundamentally the Minton Report was a draft, it was a work in progress. And it was immediately superseded by another report which looked at the actual material because the Minton report was just an analysis of possible...there was no fundamental analysis. It was superseded very quickly by the NFI [Netherlands Forensic Institute] Report, which basically demonstrated that the slops could not have caused what’s been alleged. And in particular the NFI report formed the basis, the authoritative analysis for both the claimants and ourselves within the UK class action... All [the injunction] was designed to do was to stop some of the media to report in a misleading fashion on the Minton report. It was never intended to stop parliamentary questions or debate in parliament on such issues."
