Javier Moro on Bhopal

26 January 2015

By Salil Tripathi, Senior Advisor, Global Issues, IHRB

Javier Moro is co-author of "Five Past Midnight in Bhopal: The Epic Story of the World's Deadliest Industrial Disaster".

The book examines in great detail what went wrong in December 1984, when a deadly gas leak from a plant of Union Carbide in India killed thousands of people. The victims are still seeking justice.

IHRB's Salil Tripathi met Moro at the Jaipur Literature Festival where they discussed the victims' struggle for justice and Moro's efforts to highlight the victims' plight, including retaining lawyers to represent their interests.
