EXCERPT

Exxon Mobil sought arbitration after the government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez nationalized an oil project in 2007. The company also is pressing its case before a World Bank tribunal.

REFERENCE

Sovereign immunity waives a holder from all legal liability for their actions. It is proposed that this immunity from responsibility is a "shield which [The World Bank] wants resort to, for escaping accountability and security by the people."[62] As the United States has veto power, it can prevent the World Bank from taking action against its interests.[62]

MY TAKE

Nothing I mean nothing is going to be won as a final degree in TORT claims against those who have the biggest wallet.

We as a people best wake up to that and take steps to bring about changes.
