WILLEMSTAD – Environmentalist groups SMOC and Humane Care will collect 75 million guilders from the oil refinery Isla and the Build Own and Operate (BOO) plant. Through a so-called garnishment.
The judge imposed a fine on appeal in 2010. To be paid for each year that there are more sulfur dioxide emissions than permitted.
The judge then also determined how it should be measured. From those measurements it shows that in 2013 in both the best scenario and the worst case scenario, the refinery went way over the standards.
Through the maze of Isla-corporate vehicles it will take some time to find the correct account of Isla and BOO, where the money is.
