Greenpeace continues Trafigura pursuit over toxic waste

Greenpeace said today it would continue legal action against Trafigura, the London-based oil traders whose toxic waste was dumped in Ivory Coast in 2006, injuring thousands of Africans. Trafigura confirmed a last-minute £30m deal to settle compensation claims. That amounts to almost £1,000 for each of the 31,000 people involved…Greenpeace wants Trafigura prosecuted for manslaughter and grievous bodily harm, citing documents it says demonstrate the waste's high toxicity. Trafigura also faces a Dutch prosecution for allegedly lying about the true nature of its waste.
