Nigeria: UK Court Halts Shell's Bid to Stop Bodo Community's Suit Over Cleanup

May 29, 2018

The court has ruled that Bodo community in Nigeria, which had been involved in a protracted legal battle with Shell over the cleanup of two 2008 oil spills, should retain the option of litigation for another year.

The judge ruled that the community should be allowed to continue their legal action against the oil giant in the United Kingdom (UK) courts to force them to clean up their oil pollution.

She refused to place any limitation on when the community could come back to court to make sure the clean-up takes place properly.

 

The judgment by Cockerill follows a hearing on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 where Shell had attempted to block the Bodo community from coming back to court in England in the future.
