UN REPORT & CONTROVERSIAL DECISION TO EXONERATE

SHELL FOR OIL POLLUTION IN NIGER DELTA - WOMEN

Oil giant blamed for 10% of 9m barrels leaked in 40 years
Report claims rest of leaking oil caused by saboteurs

The UNEP denies it has been influenced by Shell, which paid for its $10m, three-year study.

An investigation by the United Nations will almost entirely exonerate Royal Dutch Shell for 40 years of oil pollution in the Niger delta, causing outrage among communities who have long campaigned to force the multinational to clean up its spills and pay compensation.
