Tales of Clemenceau

Chirac orders Clemenceau back home, after France's highest court calls upon the Government to recall the asbestos-laden ship.

Greenpeace hails recall of Clemenceau and asks Alang ship-breaking industry to upgrade to international standards.

The French are not all happy about it obviously. French press comes down on President.
"The entire misadventure has cost us far more than if the asbestos removal and decontamination had been done in France.

And while, the France's highest court ruled Clemenceau back, the Indian Supreme court put a gag order on demonstrations and publishing on this matter: Court gag on ship opinion fuels debate
... and we claim freedom of speech in India, right?
