Bildt Downplays Lundin Report

Published fredag 11 juni 2010 kl 17.16
Sudan has been torn by civil war

Sweden's Foreign Minister Carl Bildt says there's nothing new in the report investigating alleged crimes by Lundin Petroleum in Sudan.

Bildt was on the board of the company now known as Lundin Oil when it was active in Sudan. He left in 2006, when he became a minister after the Swedish election.

He says that he cannot comment on the investigation, as that would infringe the freedom of the judicial process.

According to the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (Ecos) a consortium, including Lundin, was involved in crimes against humanity by hiring army officers to drive away the population in areas with oil.

Carl Bildt says any crimes relate to individuals' activities - and that Ecos are simply against any form of oil extraction in Sudan, something that he says would be crippling for the country's economy.
