Over the past few years, Professor Tor A. Benjaminsen has publicly raised concerns about projects managed by the Norwegian forest company Green Resources (GR) in East Africa. The CEO of the company has now responded by claiming that Benjaminsen is against 'development' and would like Africans to live in straw huts. Meanwhile, Norfund — one of GR's financiers -- also sent a complaint to NMBU's ethics board about Benjaminsen's critique of GR in the media.
