EPISODE DESCRIPTION

BBC Business Daily interviewed Platform in detail about its new report on Shell's human rights abuses in the Niger Delta. Shell were invited to the interview but refused. The BBC World Service broadcast the report to hundred millions of listeners worldwide.
The report, titled 'Counting the Cost' implicates Shell in cases of serious violence in Nigeria’s oil-rich Niger Delta region from 2000 to 2010. The report uncovers how Shell’s routine payments to armed militants exacerbated conflicts, in one case leading to the destruction of Rumuekpe town where it is estimated that at least 60 people were killed. According to Platform’s report, Shell continues to rely on Nigerian government forces who have perpetrated systematic human rights abuses against local residents, including unlawful killings, torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment. The report is available to download here: http://j.mp/qHAPr5
