    Hussein Jalloud, the young man's father, says that burning gas in an oil field run by [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120722/%D8%A8%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%AA%D9%8A%D8%B4 %D8%A8%D8%AA%D8%B1%D9%88%D9%84%D9%8A%D9%88%D9%85/ar/]British Petroleum[/url] in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] caused his son [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to develop leukemia.

    According to the [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120946/%D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%B3%D9%8A/ar/]BBC[/url], this is believed to be the first time that an individual has initiated legal proceedings against a major oil company over gas flaring practices.



    The letter of claim included that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]'s leukemia and subsequent death were due to "toxic emissions from the Rumaila oil field", and that BP was partly responsible as the main contractor.

    Jalloud is seeking compensation for the cost of his son's medical treatment including chemotherapy abroad and a bone marrow transplant, loss of earnings, and funeral costs.

    Hussein Jalloud said, "I only hope that those who hear my voice, from BP, will think about my situation. I do not represent myself alone. I also represent these poor people who live here and suffer from pollution," according to the [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120946/%D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%B3%D9%8A/ar/]BBC[/url].

    “This is an important example of environmental lawsuits seeking compensation for harmful emissions caused by a major carbon company,” said Wissen Jazrawi, a partner at [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/2555472075/%D9%87%D8%A7%D9%88%D8%B3%D9%81%D9%8A%D9%84%D8%AF %D9%88%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%A7%D9%87/ar/]Hausfeld & Co[/url], which represents Jalloud. “Such companies have generally been able to carry out harmful environmental practices with Impunity, especially when these events occur in the Global South.”

    Although the activity occurred in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], Jalloud is able to bring the case in the [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/47376/%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D9%85%D9%84%D9%83%D8%A9 %D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AA%D8%AD%D8%AF%D8%A9/ar/]UK[/url] courts because BP's headquarters are in the [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/47376/%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D9%85%D9%84%D9%83%D8%A9 %D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AA%D8%AD%D8%AF%D8%A9/ar/]UK[/url].

    For its part, BP said: “As we mentioned before, BP is not and has never been the operator of the Rumaila field. However, we continue to support the main contractor, Basra Energy Company Limited, in its work to help reduce its flaring and emissions.”
