In Sept, 2009, the Guardian claimed that Carter-Ruck had recently demanded it to delete published articles relating to the Trafigura toxic oil disaster, saying it was “gravely defamatory” and “untrue” to say that Trafigura’s waste had been dumped cheaply and could have caused deaths and serious injuries. The Guardian claimed that, later, Trafigura agreed to pay compensation to 31,000 west African victims. The Guardian also alleged that other media outlets in Holland and Norway were also threatened with gagging actions.
