The War Crimes Case Against Lundin
WEBINAR MARCH 29TH 2021
16.00-17.30 CAT / 15.00-16.30 CET / 9am-10.30am EST
Unpaid Debt, the Legacy of Lundin, OMV and Petronas, Sudan 1997-2003
The war crimes trial of oil company Lundin Energy is imminent. The Swedish prosecutor is rounding up his investigation and Lundin Energy’s Chairman and its former CEO may soon be charged with aiding and abetting international crimes.
Because the responsibility for the management of the investigated operations was shared between consortium members, OMV and Petronas will be standing accused in absence.
The case was brought in 2010 with the report Unpaid Debt that PAX wrote for the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan. People who underwent the investigated atrocities claim that Lundin, Petronas, OMV and their shareholders have been willfully blind to their fate for over 20 years.
Meanwhile, a proposal to adopt a human rights friendly legal defense strategy will be put to the vote during Lundin’s March 30th annual shareholder meeting. The Board of Directors opposes it.
This webinar will dive into perspectives of victims, impacts of the case in South Sudan and implications for global corporate liability.
