[PDF] Press release: Heritage Oil arbitration case in London deprives Ugandan citizens of right to information

Author: Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (Acode), Civil Society Coalition on Oil, Global Witness and others, Published on: 29 August 2012

A closed-door London arbitration tribunal between Heritage Oil and the Government of Uganda denies Ugandans the right to information about the management of the country's critical oil wealth, claim campaign groups and civil society leaders...[The] groups are calling for the proceedings and the case’s outcome to be open to the public.

[also refers to Tullow Oil]
