This is the Lundin War Crimes Trial, a podcast-series produced by PAX and Global Idé, that follows the criminal trial in which two executives of a Swedish oil company, Lundin, will be tried for aiding abetting war crimes committed in Sudan between 1999-2003.

The company is also charged for profiting from war crimes in what is now part of South Sudan. During the period the company was active 200,000 people were forced to leave their homes and 12,000 people were killed.

Can a Swedish court bring justice to the survivors of the oil war?

    The Defense Tactics

    The defense has finished their presentations in court, and we all wonder: what is their strategy, and did they present any striking new evidence to prove their clients' innocence?

    E9: The OMV Case and Rethinking CSR

    E9: The OMV Case and Rethinking CSR

    The OMV Case and Rethinking CSR
    Around the world, there are more and more cases involving companies' complicity in human rights abuses. In the Sudan operation, Lundin cooperated with two companies: Petronas of Malaysia and OMV from Austria. An Austrian NGO has just filed a complaint against OMV, accusing them of crimes in South Sudan together with Lundin. Much of the evidence presented in the complaint comes from the indictment against Lundin.
    We have invited one of the lawyers who has helped prepare the case to give us the details of the process ahead. We will also discuss how legislation has changed and what effect this has on companies today. Are companies at greater risk of being prosecuted for operations today? And does this lead to multinational corporations taking more responsibility for the environmental and social effects of their operations?
    Participants: 
    - Astrid Reisinger Coracini, Senior Lecturer and Researcher in International Law who also serves on the Advisory Board of CEHRI – the Vienna based Centre for the Enforcement of Human Rights International, which prepared the complaint against OMV together with the Dutch peace organization PAX.
    - Professor David Whyte, Director of the Centre for Climate Crime and Climate Justice at Queen Mary University of London.

    - Halima Athumani

    E8: Was the World Silent?

    E8: Was the World Silent?

    Was the World Silent?
    The defense is arguing that Lundins business in Sudan was accepted by the international community. The UN did not intervene, nor did the EU. Is that true? Was the world silent? 
    We decided to take a closer look at who spoke out to stop the atrocities and who kept quiet. We also discuss how the different actors are responding today in the current civil war that is tearing Sudan apart. 
    Participants: 
    - Nicholas Coghlan, ex Canadian diplomat who has served both in Sudan and in South Sudan, author of two books about his experiences from that time Far in the Waste Sudan and Collapse of a Country: A Diplomat’s Memoir of South Sudan
    - Marina Peter, founder of the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan, that published the report, Unpaid Debt

    E7: Is the System Broken?

    E7: Is the System Broken?

    Is the System Broken?

    There are a number of international binding and non-binding conventions put in place to protect victims of war crimes, but to what extent is the international community living up to its obligations?

    In this episode, we discuss how the legal system is failing victims and how to fix it. You will also get the latest updates from the trial.

    With us to discuss this we have the lawyer Anders Sjögren, who, as a legal counsel, represents half of the plaintiffs in the Lundin war crimes case. Also Fanny Holm, whose research focuses on the legal framework for states to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, as well as the legal means available for providing reparations to victims of those crimes.

    Participants:
    - Fanny Holm, researcher at Umeå University
    - Anders Sjögren, plaintiff’s counsel

    - Halima Athumani
