Total under fire over Uganda land issues
Friends of the Earth France and Survie have accused Total of human rights violations in Uganda and Tanzania.
The NGOs have published a report, “A nightmare named Total”, as part of their long-running campaign to force the French company to withdraw from its East African plans. In October 2019, the group brought a case against Total under the French duty of vigilance for corporations.
The groups intend to file the report with the Versailles Court of Appeal, with a hearing due for October 28. The environmentalists lost their first legal attempt, with the Nanterre court finding that it was not the right location for such a complaint.
