PDVSA before the Court of Justice

Oil spillWILLEMSTAD - The Court in Curaçao can continue with the lawsuit against Venezuelan state oil company PdVSA. The oil company is on trial because of the oil spill last year at Jan Kok. August last year, a large amount of oil flowed from Bullenbaai into the Jan Kok nature reserve. PdVSA claimed responsibility, but later withdrew that confession again.

The oil multinational believes that the local court is not competent and wanted a second opinion on this matter. The case will now be treated on January 6, 2014.
