Walsingham Posted August 31, 2009 Share Posted August 31, 2009 I just finished reading this article in the Financial Times. Essentially it concerns a liability suit by a chap called Robert Silverman, over some faulty fireworks, and should be a serious worry to all of us. The meat of the article is that the chinese based company, asserted that because it was owned by the Chinese state it was exempt from civil prosecution. And that was after years of refusing to even address the case, after more than one writ against them. What it means to you and me is that if we are using or consuming a chinese product and it goes awry, we get sod all. Even when a case is found and pushed through, chinese companies will dissolve rather than pay up. I found this terrifying, and at the same time am bothered by the injustice. I will be seeking to avoid chinese manufactured products and urge you to read the article and comment. "It wasn't lies. It was just... bull****"." -Elwood Blues tarna's dead; processing... complete.
