On 21 June 2010, the International Prosecution Office in Sweden initiated a preliminary investigation on potential complicity in crimes against international humanitarian law in Sudan from 1997 to 2003. The purpose was to investigate if individuals connected to Sweden could be suspected of involvement in such crimes.
Since the start of the investigation, Lundin has continuously cooperated with the Prosecution Office, through provision of information and materials, and the offering of interviews with Lundin representatives, many of whom have met on a number of occasions with the Prosecution Office.
We remain convinced that there are no grounds for any allegations of wrongdoing against any representative of Lundin and we have always been an advocate for peace by peaceful means in the Sudan.
”I believe that we contributed positively and with protection in the areas where we operated. These areas were of course just a small stamp on the big map in a very complicated situation. But in those areas, we also contributed to developing healthcare and education in cooperation with NGOs and the UN, and they continued these efforts after we left the area.”
