Dutch Prosecution Says Trafigura Fine Is Too Low

The Dutch public prosecutor’s service appealed a ruling by an Amsterdam district court against Trafigura Beheer BV for shipping harmful waste to Ivory Coast, saying the fine of 1 million euros ($1.3 million) was too low.

The prosecution can also prove that the closely held commodities trader committed fraud, Esther Schreur, spokeswoman for the Dutch National Fraud Prosecutor said, confirming an earlier report by the newspaper De Volkskrant.
