India: Bhopal organisation moves for ex-parte trial proceedings against Dow Chemical

Leaders of all the organisations of survivors of the Union Carbide Disaster in Bhopal on Wednesday condemned the governments of both India and USA for the non appearance of any representative of Dow Chemical Company in the ongoing criminal case on the disaster...In the last two years Dow Chemical has thrice ignored the court's notice and all that the Indian government has done is send one meek request after another and not utter a word on the violation of the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) in not serving the notice on Dow Chemical," said Rachna Dhingra of BGIA. It was submitted that the CBI is deliberately shielding the Accused....Bhopal survivors' organisations had collected over one hundred thousand signatures on a petition demanding that the US DoJ serve Bhopal Court's notice on Dow Chemical as per the terms of the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty signed between India and USA in 1991. As per the terms of the petition on Whitehouse.gov website the US government is obligated to respond to charges of violation of MLAT by the US DoJ.
