On 20 August, Al-Jazeera[1] interviewed Platform researcher Ben Amunwa about the leaked data[2] that revealed Shell’s deep financial links to human rights abusers in Nigeria. Unfortunately a technical hitch cut the first interview short. However, it’s worth watching, if only for the ‘shifty eyes’ at the end of the video as the line cuts out and confusion descends. The network made it good, by scheduling a second, longer interview because of the high level of public interest in the story. You can watch both videos below.

First interview: (with shifty eyes)

Second interview: (without the tech hitch)
