Sweden: Regime charges two oil executives for war crimes in Sudan

Source: Spectrum News 1

“Sweden has charged two executives of a Swedish oil exploration and production company for complicity in the military’s war crimes in Sudan from 1999 to 2003, including in its dealings with the country’s regime to secure the company’s oil operations in the African nation. The two, who were not identified by the Swedish Prosecution Authority, had ‘a decisive influence’ on the business of Stockholm-based Lundin Oil AB in Sudan, the prosecutors said …. A 2010 report by an activist group, the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan, alleged that Lundin Oil and three other oil companies helped exacerbate the war in southern Sudan by signing an oil exploration deal with the Sudanese government for an area the regime didn’t fully control.” (11/11/21)
