Chevron has been misleading the news media and the US courts about the so-called remediation agreement signed in 1995 by Texaco and the government of Ecuador.
Chevron wants us to believe the agreement releases it from all liability in the lawsuit, but the truth is, it doesn’t. The agreement only applies to government claims, and Chevron’s own attorney said so. Perez Pallares admitted under oath that the release is not valid in this case. Making Chevron look even worse is the fact that Perez Pallares is the lawyer who negotiated and signed the release for Chevron.
The Chevron Pit writes in more detail about Chevron's inability to keep its story straight.
