Ten years ago, Gilberto Torres, a trade unionist working in the Colombian oil industry, was kidnapped by right-wing paramilitaries and brutally tortured. His lawyers have just lodged a claim for damages against BP in the British high court – a move which is regarded as a test case in corporate ethics.

SPEAKERS : Gilberto Torres, Colombian trade unionist; Francisco Ramirez Cuellar (trade unionist and lawyer with the Colombian Unified Trade Union Federation) Sue Willman, lawyer, partner at Deighton, Pierce and Glynn Richard Howitt (TBC); Juan Sebastian Smart, Oil Justice; Peter Drury, Amnesty International
