US court allows lawsuit against Chiquita

Wednesday, December 7, 2016


A US judge ruled Colombian war victims are allowed to sue banana giant Chiquita Brands under American jurisdiction, according to the victims’ defense.

The court decision quashed the multinational fruit and vegetable company’s pleas to hear the case in Colombia where they no longer have operations nor assets and allows it to proceed in the US where they can pay for their crimes.
