Widows of Slain Nigerian Activists Continue Fight Against Shell

A District Court in The Hague has issued an interim ruling in favour of wives of Ogoni leaders killed in 1995 during the Sani Abacha era. The women - Esther Kiobel, Victoria Bera, Blessing Eawo and Charity Levula - sued Shell for its alleged role in the unlawful arrest, detention and execution of their husbands for opposing the oil giant and the military government. Shell denies the allegation.
