Ecuadorian Constitutional Court Rejects Chevron’s Protection Action


UDAPT in action


This is an important victory for the UDAPT. Ecuador’s Constitutional Court rejects the protection action requested by Chevron.

Following Chevron’s application to Ecuadorian courts to have the 2013 sentence that condemned this entity set aside, the Constitutional Court reaffirmed Chevron’s responsibility for environmental crimes in Ecuador’s Amazon.

An important victory for the Union of the communities affected by the oil operations of Texaco (now Chevron) (UDAPT), a long-standing partner of CETIM, which continues its fight for access to justice and against the impunity of transnational corporations.
