Thank you for the new sources. Looks like we'll have to wait until the investigation is over to see who is culpable.


This:

Quote:
now a subsidiary of Dow Chemical Co.
seems a little odd, if Dow did not own the plant at the time of the incident, how are they responsible for the accident in any way?

Hi Redneck,

They are not actually ...........It was U.S.-owned Union Carbide ...............Dow Purchased it so i think they are also entitled to all the Libialited it bears or not?

it's the Union Carbide management......and the Union Carbide Chairman Warren Anderson that is wanted in the case...... but the money has to come form Dow because teh own the companey now?

I'm no sort of expert on business law, international or otherwise, but it seems that the company that owned the plant at the time of the incident, unless it is now defunct, in which case it would be rather difficult to get any money out of it, would be solely responsible for the restitution to the victims if it was in fact found liable.

But then again, as I said before, I do not know what the law says about it.
