Belgium reopens Myanmar humanity crimes probe against oil giant Total

Total on Tuesday faced a renewed Belgian probe into its alleged support of Myanmar's military regime… Belgium authorities are reopening a case brought by Myanmar refugees that Total was involved in crimes against humanity in their country, the refugees' lawyer said. Four refugees accuse the company of having used forced labour provided by the military regime to build a gas pipeline...[and] of having provided logistic and financial support in the 1990s to the military junta… [L]ast year the group was cleared of charges in France that it relied on forced labour to build the…pipeline after an out-of-court settlement… Total declined to comment on the Belgian case other than by saying it had "taken note" that it had been reopened. [also refers to Unocal (part of Chevron)]
