Lundin faces prosecution for Sudan oil war abuses
Sweden’s government has given the green light for the Public Prosecutor to charge two top executives of the Stockholm-based Lundin Petroleum company for assisting suspected crimes against humanity in Sudan between 1997 and 2003 by fueling the country’s oil wars in the south. This is being hailed by NGOs as a ‘unique case’ for corporate accountability. While the company denies any wrongdoing.

War Crimes investigation against Lundin delayed
Because of the bloody conflict in the notorious Block 5A, it may take some time before the investigators who were conducting hearings in the war crimes investigation against Lundin return to South Sudan.

Lundin not welcome
Human Rights Watch, Christian Aid, the oil company Talisman and the UN are among those who have documented what happened. So many knew, but apparently not Lundin.
Dagen, Jacob Zetterman, 16-5-2012
The road back to the victims is so long
Carl Bildt and Ian Lundin should travel to South Sudan and ask for forgiveness. On Egbert Wesselink’s part a reconciliation process with Christian overtones weighs more heavily than accusations of crimes under international law in a Swedish court.

Clean up the oil act
Last year Lundin Petroleum achieved its best operating results ever. Its successful operations in Norway have made Lundin into a major and important Nordic player. And particular demands are made of these. For this reason, it is deeply regrettable that the company AGM yesterday voted no to a demand for an independent enquiry into the many unanswered questions about its activities in Sudan and Ethiopia.

Up against the wall
Lundin petroleum’s AGM was marked by very tough words and major antagonisms.

“Why should the public believe the Lundin Group’s version?”
Why should I and the general public believe accusations made against the Lundin Group are ‘unfounded and unjust’ rather than believing Amnesty, FN, Human Rights Watch, ICG and world-leading experts on the Sudan, writes Johan Brosché.

The last oil for South Sudan
The oil industry in Sudan is leading to escalation of the civil war say voluntary organisations. The oil is helping to develop the country, says Carl Bildt, Sweden’s former Prime Minister and current UN envoy to the Balkans. Bildt is a board member of controversial oil company, Lundin Oil.
