Shell says "happy" with Dutch court ruling on Nigeria pollution
THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell said on Wednesday it was "happy" with a verdict issued by a Dutch district court, which acquitted it of the bulk of pollution charges filed by Nigerian farmers.
The court said its wholly owned subsidiary Shell Nigeria was responsible for oil spills but that they had been caused by sabotage, not poor maintenance of its facilities.
