Public-Interest Lawsuit Nets $1.1 Million From Ocean Polluters
Five people have been ordered to pay more than 7 million yuan ($1.1 million) for dumping waste into an estuary in southern China, in what is believed to be the country’s first-ever public-interest lawsuit to punish ocean polluters.
The case involved workers paid by a paper mill in the industrial city of Dongguan, Guangdong province, in 2016 to dispose of refuse, which was then dumped into in a shipping lane just off the coast.
