We are still shocked for the outrageous verdict issued by the Italian Supreme Court which dismissed the Eternit case for applying the statute of limitation although Stephan Schmidheiny was found guilty even by his own lawyer!
But Casale Monferrato, the city-symbol of the fight against asbestos decided to react!
Among the many legal, political and social initiatives, I would like to highlight this one:
Stephan Schmidheiny must be judged by the International Court of Justice in La Hague for crimes against humanity. Indeed what’s the difference between war crimes and a slaughter that caused only in the town of Casale more than 3000 deaths? And Eternit was not only in Casale nor in Italy, she was in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, France, Austria, South America, South Africa, Asia…
We are studying the case with our lawyers and we would like to bring together victims groups from other countries. Would you like to join us?
In the meantime I ask you on behalf ofAssociazione Familiari Vittime Amianto (Afeva) to sign this petition on change.org and to spread it in your webs and social networks. It takes 3 minutes. You can also add a comment.
Thank you very much,
Alessandro Pugno, GBAN Member and Associazione Familiari Vittime Amianto Representative
