[GreenYes] Setting precedent for trafficking hazardous waste


Setting precedent for trafficking hazardous waste

By every rule in the book, this ship, carrying asbestos waste and radioactive elements, should not be in Indian waters, let alone be beached.

And yet, despite well-premised objections, the central government persuaded the Supreme Court to rule that Blue Lady be dismantled at Alang.

P.S.: A fresh application in the case is now with the Supreme Court since 4 October. The application is seeking further clarifications on:
the final position of the apex court on the quantity of various toxic and radioactive substances on board the Blue Lady, how decontamination
will be done, the scientific basis of the decision that beaching was not reversible, the position regarding the original and illegal entry,
anchorage and beaching of the ship itself, and more.
