[PDF] Statement of the Plaintiffs in Wiwa v. Royal Dutch/Shell, Wiwa v. Anderson, and Wiwa v. SPDC
Author: Lucky Doobee, Monday Gbokoo, David Kiobel, Karalolo Kogbara, Blessing Kpuinen, James N-nah, Friday Nuate, Ken Saro-Wiwa, Jr., Michael Vizor, Owens Wiwa, Published on: 8 June 2009
The Plaintiffs in the Wiwa v. Shell cases are pleased to announce a settlement of their claims…This settlement only resolves the individual claims of the Plaintiffs for the injuries they have suffered and provides them compensation…The settlement will create The Kiisi Trust. The name “kiisi” means “progress” in our Ogoni languages. This Trust will allow for initiatives in Ogoni for educational endowments, skills development programmes, agricultural development, women’s programmes, small enterprise support, and adult literacy. The settlement will also provide funds to compensate the Plaintiffs for their injuries. The larger disputes between Shell and Ogoni remain and are beyond the scope of our settlement.
