Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, yesterday, said it was dismayed at the decision of the United Kingdom Appeal Court blocking an attempt to hold Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited, SPDC, accountable for her crimes in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.
MOSOP Publicity Secretary, Fegalo Nsuke, in a statement, said: “However, we wish to state that the court’s decision does not exonerate Shell of the heinous crimes it has committed in the Niger Delta. The reality about Shell in Ogoni and the entire Niger Delta is that the company is a killer.
“The court’s decision may have made it more difficult to hold Shell to account for its crimes in the Niger Delta where its activities have sent millions of people to death but it does not foreclose other options to justice.
“MOSOP considers this judgment not only as a blow to the aspirations of the Ogoni people and the people of the Niger Delta but a bad precedent and a dangerous setback against the hopes of millions of people who suffer injustice from business operations of U.K multi-nationals.”
