Unpaid Debt
The Legacy of Lundin, Petronas and OMV in Block 5A, Sudan 1997
A comprehensive overview of the role of the Lundin Consortium in the oil war. ECOS calls upon the Swedish, Austrian and Malaysian governments to investigate whether, as a matter of international law, Lundin, OMV and Petronas ‘were complicit in the commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity by others during the period 1997-2003.’ In response, the Swedish Public Prosecutor for International crimes opened a criminal investigation into ‘links between Sweden and the reported crimes’. The investigation is likely to be focusing on senior managers and members of the Board of Directors of Lundin Petroleum.
