INDIA - Supreme Court refuses to reopen the case of Bhopal

"Too late and baseless: Supreme Court rejects the request of the CBI on Bhopal," as the daily. The Central Bureau of Investigation, the Indian equivalent of the FBI, failed in his attempt to increase penalties for perpetrators of the Bhopal disaster. In 1984, a toxic cloud from a U.S. plant had caused thousands of deaths in the central region.

In 2010, seven executives of the plant were sentenced to two years in prison for negligence, barely considered too weak by the IWC.
