the Eternit trial report, Torino (Italy)
Just weeks after the historic verdict in Turin, one of the world's leading asbestos lobbying groups closed down! On May 1, news was obtained which verified the fact that at the end of March 2012, the offices rented by the Chrysotile Institute in downtown Montreal had been vacated. Days later the Institute surrendered its charter to the Canadian Government and thereby signalled the end to nearly 30 years of asbestos lobbying. This is a historic event and one which is a huge victory for all those people, in Italy and elsewhere, who have been campaigning to ban asbestos. These developments are documented in an article entitled: The rise and Fall of the Chrysotile Institute which can be read at: http://ibasecretariat.org/lka-rise-and-fall-of-chrysotile-institute...
