San Francisco Sentinel – CASE AGAINST CHEVRON IN ECUADOR CONTINUES TO UNRAVEL – Expert Finds No Oil Contamination In Amazon, Amazon Defense Plaintiffs Freak Out
The faux walls that have supported the fraudulent $27 billion legal case against Chevron in Ecuador came tumbling down this month with the revelation that the “independent court appointed expert” Richard Cabrera stands to gain financially from any judgment against the oil company.
The ‘independent’ expert had hid his conflict of interest from the court–and is now discredited by the fact that he had a vested personal interest in finding Chevron guilty. In any courtroom that follows the rule of law, the entire case against Chevron would be dismissed. But this is Ecuador, where justice is as slippery as the banana republic itself.
