A report released by Amnesty International and Greeneace calls for the criminal investigation of Trafigura, the company behind the 2006 dumping of toxic waste in Côte d’Ivoire.
Amnesty International has called on the Ivory Coast government to ensure that compensation paid out by Trafigura reaches victims of toxic waste dumping.
A campaign in the Ivory Coast has led to the multinational oil trader Trafigura agreeing to pay compensation to 30,000 people made ill by the company's dumped waste. The news has provoked a mixed reaction from campaigners.
