Chinese  firm told to pay US$65 million. Beijing Court said: It destroyed MAS plane.

Beijing:
A Chinese state-run company has been ordered to pay a record US$65 million (RM220mil) in compensation, plus interest, for destroying a Malaysian Airlines (MAS) plane with falsely declared cargo of caustic chemicals.
The Airbus A330 was ruined when 80 canisters belonging to the Dailian branch of the China National Chemical construction Corp leaked an extremely corrosive chemical, oxalyl chloride, in the cargo hold in March 2000.

The crew of the passenger flight from Beijing detected an acrid odour before landing in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) en route to India and five ground handlers fell ill when unloading the canisters to be sold to an Indian company.

The passengers disembarked without incident, but the US$130 million aircraft was so badly damaged that the manufacturer concluded that it could not be repaired.

 
The Beijing Higher People's Court ruled on Wednesday that the Dalian company should bear the main blame as it had declared the canisters contained a safe chemical in the form of powder, the Beijing Times said yesterday.
 
The company had to pay five foreign insurers for Malaysia Airlines US$65 million, plus interest, in compensation, ending a five year lawsuit, the newspaper said.
 
The compensation ordered by the Beijing court was the highest ever for a civil lawsuit in the Chinese capital, the newspaper said. Both sides have yet to decide whether to appeal against the ruling, the newspaper said. Reuters.
