There have been major developments in the trial against the accused Ian Lundin, Alex Schneiter and the company Orrön Energy (previously known as Lundin Oil, Lundin Petroleum or Lundin Energy.
On November 22, 2023, the court decided to separate the South Sudanese plaintiff’s claims for compensation from the war crimes trial. Instead, the victims will have to start separate civil cases that require them to deposit 45 000 euros each.
The court argues that the claims for compensation were handed in too late and that the power of attorneys is still missing.
What will this mean for the victims?
In this episode, meet George and Peter, South Sudanese activists who have attended the court hearings. They will share their views on the trial and the latest developments.
