Libéria : 5 communautés exigent le paiement d'un solde dans l'accord foncier avec Equatorial Palm Oil dans le comté de Grand Bassa (En)

The predominant rubber farmers accepted the money from the Malaysian company to expand its plantation on their land in the District No. 4. (...) But more than four years after, the five communities allege they were cheated in the deal. They say the company still owes them, and they demand retroactive payment. »
