Bhopal, August 2, 2014.  At a press conference today, five organizations working for the rights of the survivors of the Bhopal gas disaster called upon the state and central governments to urgently respond to the juridical issues concerning the gas disaster and the ongoing contamination of soil and groundwater.

Balkrishna Namdeo of the Bhopal Gas Peedit Nirashrit Pension Bhogi Sangharsh Morcha said that on 30th July, Justice Keenan in the Southern District Court of New York dismissed the matter concerning contamination of soil and ground water in and around the Union Carbide factory. According to him, the 17 plaintiffs from Bhopal represented by US based attorneys from-- EarthRights International, Sharma & Deyoung LLP, and the Law Offices of Curtis V. Trinko will appeal against the unjust order before the second circuit court of appeals.

Honourable Prime Minister,

Government of India, North Block, Raisina Hill,
New Delhi 110 011

 

Subject: Urgent Directions for Filing of Application for Amending Civil Curative Petition No 345-347/2010 for Additional Compensation before Supreme Court on August 5, 2014.

 

Dear Sir,  

On behalf of the survivors of the December 1984 Union Carbide gas disaster in Bhopal we wish to draw your urgent attention to the hearing of the Curative Petition filed by the Government of India on December 3, 2010 that is scheduled to be heard on August 5, 2014.

For the last several years we have attempted to apprise the Prime Minister’s office that the figures of exposure related deaths and injuries in the Curative Petition filed by the Government of India are wrong and without any basis.
