Bhopal verdict: a most convenient injustice

The Union Carbide plant in Bhopal

You have to wonder if equality and fairness can ever prevail in the world. All the furore over foreign TNC spilling oil in the US Gulf but no justice when a US TNC kills thousands in India.

A tiny penalty for each life lost underlines the absence of balance between economic and political power in the Bhopal trial.
