Lawsuit against refinery for disaster at Jan Kok

WILLEMSTAD - The Heritage Foundation will start a civil lawsuit against Refineria Isla (Curacao Refinery).

The foundation wants the Refinery to pay for the costs of the investigation into the oil spill at Jan Kok. They also prevent a disaster like this to ever happen again.

On August 24, the oil leak was discovered at the Jan Kok area. The refinery initially took the responsibility, but later said that they were not to blame for the disaster.

Some landowners have then put money together for a first examination of the extent of the damage. That was greater than expected.
