Plaintiffs' Lawyers' Letter to International Commission of Jurists

Frente de Defensa de la Amazonia
23 February 2006

Letter from plaintiffs' lawyers in 2006 requesting neutral trial observers to ensure that the judicial inspections could proceed properly and that the Chevron trial would be held to high standards of fairness and transparency. The letter was written in response to a pattern of threats and intimidation of members of the plaintiffs' legal team, as well as apparent efforts by Chevron's military associates to cancel or postpone judicial inspections that might reflect badly on Chevron.
