AMISOL  (Clermont Ferrand) Shame on the French Justice Act Against the Victims of the Worst Asbestos Factory!
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

February 13, 2012 in Turin, two former asbestos executives, were convicted for their part in the causation of an Italian asbestos disaster and condemned to 16 years in jail. February 8, 2013, for similar acts committed at the same time, with the same consequences, the Appeal Court of Paris decided that the trial of Claude Chopin, former executive of the French asbestos textile factory “AMISOL,” will not take place. No charge has been made against him, because "the memory of facts has been erased!" It is a dangerous precedent for all French citizens. It means that the delayed effects of industrial poisoning, whether caused by exposure to asbestos or other deadly toxins, may never be tried. The door is now wide open for corporate abusers, free to commit industrial crimes knowing that they can do so with total impunity.
The AMISOL VICTIMS DO APPEAL IN CASSATION COURT (French equivalent of a supreme court) ... THE FIGHT IS CONTINUING!
