This article is authored by Richard Spoor, a highly respected South African activist lawyer who has taken on mining companies and won some significant court victories. The last time we featured him on MAC was in March, following the setting up of a compensation fund for asbestos victims of Eternit. This is the company, operated for many years by the Schmidheiny family, whose Stephan Schmidheiny founded the Business (later World Business) Council for Sustainable Development in 1992.
