Mesothelioma News Update: Resource4thePeople Applauds Italian Court for Sentencing Swiss Millionaire in Asbestos Scandal

Resource4thePeople announced today its support of an Italian court’s decision to sentence a Swiss billionaire to 18 years in jail for his role in an asbestos scandal in which prosecutors said more than 2,000 workers died.

Details of the court’s decision were reported in a June 3, 2013 Reuters News dispatch, which said the court’s ruling could set a precedent for work-safety lawsuits in Europe.*

Resource4thePeople also said that while such large-scale criminal prosecutions are rare in the United States it supports all local, state and federal authorities who fully prosecute asbestos offenders in the interests of worker safety.

Rescource4thePeople also said its national network of attorneys will continue accepting claims from consumers who may have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma or other asbestos-caused cancers and are seeking compensation for medical and other expenses.

Reuters reported that, “Stephan Schmidheiny, found guilty of negligence that led to more than 2,000 asbestos-related deaths, was also ordered to pay millions of euros in damages to local authorities, victims and their families by an appeals court in Turin.”

The news agency said Schmidheiny is the former owner of Swiss building material maker Eternit and that prosecutors had said Schmidheiny intentionally failed to install measures to prevent workers' health being affected by asbestos at Eternit's Italian plants, which closed in 1986.

“More than 6,000 people - including former employees and residents of the four towns where the plants were located - are seeking damages in the case, Reuters said.
