2006 Amazon Defense Coalition Letter on Chevron's Efforts to Delay Ecuador Trial

25 August 2006

This statement by the Amazon Defense Coalition defends plaintiffs' legal team's decision to withdraw their request for 64 inspections they had initially requested. This decision, taken in order to expedite the trial, is consistent with Ecuadorian law and legal principles accepted worldwide. The plaintiffs need only present as much evidence as they feel is needed to conclusively prove their case.
