The article focuses on an investigation being called for by the European Parliament into eight deaths that occurred when a Greek-owned ship, sailing from a European port, dumped toxic waste in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. The ship had docked at Amsterdam, Netherlands, but set sail again when port authorities requested higher fees to unload the toxic waste. The European Union and its member states must ensure that all measures are taken to enforce existing waste shipment legislation.
