More proof that if you are a big fat corporation you can do whatever you want and pretty much get away with it

A court in the Indian city of Bhopal has sentenced eight people to two years each in jail over a gas plant leak that killed thousands of people in 1984.

The convictions are the first since the disaster at the Union Carbide plant – the world’s worst industrial accident.

The eight Indians, all former plant employees, were convicted of “death by negligence”. One had already died – the others are expected to appeal.
