    Toronto-based KAIROS claimed “foreign companies like Talisman are clearly profiting from armed conflict.”

    When Talisman announced its plans to sell its Sudanese stake, however, KAIROS said the company “has blatantly walked away from its responsibilities in Sudan,” claiming “it might have played a constructive role in transforming oil development into a force for peace rather than the instrument of death it has become.”

    That was then.

    Today (2004) KAIROS has dropped its monitoring of Talisman, a spokesperson says.
