Clarification: AP-Africa-EACOP-pipeline story | WTOP News
A controversial oil project that would connect oilfields in a Ugandan National Park to a port in Tanzania breaches global environmental guidelines for banks, according to a new nonprofit report Tuesday.
In a story published July 5, 2022, and not datelined, about a controversial oil pipeline project in East Africa, The Associated Press attributed a statement to the chair of the Equator Principles Association about the obligation of association members to assure compliance with its principles. The association later clarified that these comments should have been attributed to the organization, not to Puri personally.
