Total under fire over Uganda land issues

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.
