Trafigura update

A few posts ago, I recalled the story of Trafigura having dumped tons of petrochemical waste in the capital of Cote d'Ivoire, Abidjan, in 2006. Well, a Dutch court has found Trafigura guilty of exporting the waste from Amsterdam, and concealing the nature of the waste. This decision does not comment or judge upon what happened in Cote d'Ivoire, however, and it seems like Greenpeace may push for further litigation against Trafigura for the incident.
