Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (Barbados): Shell to pay farmers

Friday, 07 April 2006
A settlement appears to be in the offing for disgruntled farmers in Gibbons Boggs and Chancery Lane, Christ Church.
This development comes after two dozen farmers, following years of complaints, filed for a compensation package from the multi-national giant, Shell.
They claim that a leak in a fuel oil line has severely hampered production in the area, with yields dropping significantly since the problem was detected several years ago.
Lawyers for the farmers and Shell have both said they are pressing ahead for a speedy settlement in the matter.
Sources say the paying out of a multi-million dollar compensation package is expected to resolve the matter and the amount of money to be paid is now being formally negotiated.
Those negotiations started within the past few weeks with lawyer Pat Cheltenham putting the case for Shell and attorneys Ralph Thorne and Beverly Nicholls representing the farmers.
M.P for Christ Church East, Reginald Farley, has called on the oil giant Shell to settle the matter quickly.
