Isla has to present proof against oil spill Jan Kok

Oil spillWILLEMSTAD – The oil refinery Isla must prove in court that the oil spill, which occurred in 2012 at Jan Kok and severely polluted the whole area, did not come from its installations at Bullenbaai.

The judge had already ruled in this case, but Isla wanted to appeal.

In August 2012 a large amount of oil leaked into the ocean and cause a catastrophe in the natural reservoir located right next to the Bullenbaai oil installations. Initially, the oil refinery admitted that the oil came from their installations, but soon afterwards retracted their declarations.

The case will now be treated on November 10 of this year.
