SFGate.com – Chevron finds Ecuador geologist Richard Cabrera committed fraud in lawsuit
Richard Cabrera, the Ecuador economist / geologist who’s name has appeared in this space as recently as February of 2010, is back in the news again. Chevron, who’s battling a lawsuit filed by Ecuador (but with the claim that it was issued by the indigenous people of Ecuador) claims to have found evidence that Cabrera was working with the real plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit. A suit that charges Chevron failed to do environmental cleanup in that country during its oil operations that ended 18 years ago. Those oil facilities were turned over to the Ecuador-run company called Petroecuador.
