CorpWatch : ChevronTexaco Faces Trial in Ecuador for Rainforest Destruction (1909 words)
For years, ChevronTexaco had fought to avoid being subject to jurisdiction in Ecuador, fearing the uncertainty of litigation in a country where foreign control over oil resources has become a contentious issue for indigenous groups, which constitute the largest bloc of voters in Ecuador.
Adding to the stakes is that in 1999 ChevronTexaco purchased a 50% interest in an exploration bloc in a region of the Ecuadorian Amazon close to where the previous damage occurred.
The contamination was compounded by ChevronTexaco's practice of siphoning oil from the pits into large tanker-trucks, which then sprayed it along hundreds of miles of dirt roads that pass in front of houses and farming land in order to keep the dust down during the dry season.
