Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Representatives from communities impacted by palm oil companies in Liberia and Indonesia have traveled to the Netherlands to convey their grievances to ABN Amro, the financier behind those companies. The community representatives from Liberia, Terry Doegmah Panyonnoh and Harriet Sayee Saylee, were confronted with misconduct by Liberia’s largest palm oil company Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL). ABN Amro offers its customers the opportunity to invest in Astra International, the parent company of AAL. Land should be for the people and information on palm oil company concessions should be made public so I can win my case. ABN Amro called on the victims of their clients this February to come and report about the abuses, well here we are.
