Supreme Court issues judgment regarding poisonous disaster with Probo Koala
In an judgment of 11 February 2022 the Dutch Supreme Court ruled that Trafigura’s complaints against the judgement of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal of 14 April 2020 are unfounded. As a consequence of this so-called 81 RO-decision, the proceedings of the victims’ claim can be continued. The court will therefore be able to rule on the substance of Trafigura's actions and the consequences thereof.
