A London High Court of Justice ruling has found Savaro Ltd, a chemical trading company, guilty of involvement in the Beirut Port explosion that devastated the city months ago.

The company has been ordered to pay $1 million in compensation to the victims of the blast, highlighting its connection to the importation of the explosive nitrate.

Among the victims are the parents of four-year-old Alexandra Naggear, Tracy Awad, and Paul Naggear, who tragically lost their daughter in the blast.

The explosion, which occurred on August 4th, 2020, involved more than 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse at Beirut Port. The catastrophic event claimed 243+ lives instantly and injured more than 7,000 people.

Current investigations have uncovered Savaro’s direct involvement in the transportation and storage of the hazardous chemicals that led to the disaster. The consequences of the company’s actions continue to manifest.
