Public Prosecutor to Start Criminal Probe into Gas Company

A court has ordered the public prosecution to carry out a criminal investigation into earthquake damage caused by natural gas extraction by the NAM company in Groningen.  NAM is a joint venture between Shell and Exxon Mobil.  A lawyer who represents people whose home has been damaged by earthquakes resulting from the gas extraction claimed that if there is evidence that senior NAM officials knew about the damage they could face up to 15 years in jail.
