Eternit Asbestos Cement Manufacturing Plants – Ongoing Criminal Law Scrutiny in Italy and Pak

If you think Toyota is having a bad year, think about Eternit entities and its executives (not all are Eternit entities are presently related). The long arm of criminal law continues to reach out and touch Eternit entities. In Italy, trial goes forward in a week on thousands of criminal charges arising from deaths and injuries at former asbestos cement manufacturing plants in Italy. Some of the hearings are being shown on Italian television. Go here to see the accounts from a victim-oriented website. Meanwhile, similar issues are ongoing in Pakistan. The full article on Dadex Eternit Pakistan is here.

So, what do you think ? Should executives, officers and directors worry about "toxins," risks and possibilities even before epidemiology "proves" the harms with double blind studies ?
