Hot Air – Chevron awarded $96M in Ecuador shakedown arbitration
Hot Air writes about the international tribunal that found Ecuador’s courts failed to administer justice. This piece is highly critical of the fraudulent lawsuit against Chevron:
We’ve been bringing you periodic coverage of the Chevron Ecuador shakedown since early this year. As you may recall, certain groups from both Ecuador and the United States have been attempting to pick Chevron’s deep pockets to the tune of billions of dollars over supposed environmental damage to lands where Chevron’s subsidiary, Texaco, hasn’t extracted a single barrel of oil in decades. (Meanwhile, the government of Ecuador has been drilling non-stop right through to this day.) The government’s case has been shown to be rife with corruption, and several aspects of it have been turned over to international courts for review.
