Niger Delta Region and Oil Giant Shell

Niger Delta Region and Oil Giant Shell

Oil giant Shell is due to appear in a Dutch court to face charges of polluting Nigerian villages in the Niger Delta Region.

The case is being brought by four Nigerian farmers and the Dutch branch of campaigners of Friends of the Earth.

It is the first time a Dutch multinational is being put on trial in its civil court at home in connection with damage caused abroad.

Shell insists it has been unable to clean up the spills due to insecurity.
