Trafigura threats to Norwegian press over Minton report exposing toxic dumping

Revealing correspondence between the UK commodities giant Trafigura and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation over Minton report: Trafigura toxic dumping along the Ivory Coast broke EU regulations, 14 Sep 2006.

Other than the toxic dumping issue and a surrounding criminal case, the correspondence mentions details of a gag order obtained against the UK press, specifically the Guardian:

Your questions of today do also reveal the fact that you are in possession of a draft, preliminary expert opinion produced by Minton Treharne & Davies Ltd, and that you appear to be ready to disclose information from this report. Trafigura looks very serious upon this, as disclosing any information from this report would be a clear breach of confidentiality and privilege. The report is clearly privileged and confidential and was obtained unlawfully by whoever is responsible for it coming into your possession. Please be aware that on Friday of last week, our clients sought and obtained an injunction in relation to this document and information contained in it against the Guardian newspaper and Persons Unknown, pending a further hearing.
