Libéria : 5 communautés affirment avoir été trompées par Equatorial Palm Oil sur le montant des compensations (En)

« EPO paid Beah and other farmers US$6 for each of their rubber trees, a new price the government set for the tree crop since June 2013. Before then, the price was US$97.92. The reduction from US$97.92 to US$6 was meant to spur development in the country, according to the Ministry of Agriculture at the time. However, the townspeople allege that EPO used the old, higher price to negotiate with them and used a new, lower one to compensate them. »
