Shell accept liability for ruining the Niger Delta.
It's looks like there could finally be just a hint of something approaching justice for the people of the Niger Delta. For years Shell have polluted the area with impunity and the body of Ken Saro-Wiwa on the gallows an example to those who might stand up to Big Oil. Now at last the tide is beginning to turn. There is a long way to go but this is a step in the right direction.
