Lawsuit against AES-SONEL Cameroon in Federal Distric Court of Los Angeles, CA USA
AES-SONEL Cameroon in Federal District Court of Los Angeles, CA USA
Recent power outages have been blamed for the deaths of at least nine children and infants in Cameroon in 2013. The number of deaths and injuries related to power outages is estimated to be in the hundreds since AES assumed control of electrical supply in Cameroon. Business losses due to power outages are reported to be astronomical. These losses arise as a result of damaged equipment caused by the power outages. The service industry has also suffered huge financial losses due to AES’ induced unreliable supply of electrical power. The World Bank estimates that power outages in Cameroon reduce its GDP by approximately 2% annually, a loss of several hundred millions of dollars.
ATS, the law utilized to sue AES Corporation in Los Angeles, CA for its actions in a foreign country, Cameroon, is law that allows foreign citizens to bring human rights cases in U.S. District Courts for conduct committed outside the United States. It has been used to bring claims against foreign government officials and multinational corporations.
Attorney Emmanuel Nsahlai Esq., lead attorney for plaintiff’s, has noted that: “AES needs to be held accountable for the pain and sufferings of the families, loss of their children and infants; accountable to the hundreds of business persons who have lost a fortune due to disastrous electrical outages; and to the Cameroon people for the cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment they endure.”
