    ECUADOR: An appeals court has rejected an order by arbitrators seeking to prevent Amazon rainforest residents from collecting an $18 billion (£11bn) damage award against the US-based Chevron corporation for oil contamination.

    The Sucumbios provincial court ruled on Friday that human rights considerations trump concerns that a 2011 court judgement against Chevron might violate a US-Ecuador investment treaty.

    The Netherlands-based Permanent Court of Arbitration had issued its provisional order on Thursday. It has yet to rule on the merits of Chevron’s claim.
