ExxonMobil on trial over worker’s death

This video from the USA says about itself:

Riki Ott, marine toxicologist and Exxon Valdez survivor, talks to Greenopolis TV about the effects of air pollution due to oil spills. Riki says based on air monitoring conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in a Louisiana coastal community, findings show that airborne levels of toxic chemicals like hydrogen sulfide, and volatile organic compounds, now far exceed safety standards for human exposure currently in those areas.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Esso faces court over death

Friday 20 July 2012

Oil giant Esso will face charges over the death of a Honduran man at its Southampton refinery, crown prosecutors said today.

Tanker crewmate Juan Antonio Quintanilla Romero was killed in 2008 when a fuel pipe collapsed and fell on him.

Contractor Austin & McLean will also face charges of gross negligence manslaughter.

Both are due to appear in court on September 5.
