China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

China’s top court is­sued a ju­di­cial in­ter­pre­ta­tion on Thurs­day re­quir­ing lo­cal courts to ac­cept pub­lic in­ter­est law­suits against min­ing prac­tices that cause en­vi­ron­men­tal da­m­age. Min­ing with­out a li­cense or with un­sus­tain­able meth­ods has caused great da­m­age to the en­vi­ron­ment and its se­ri­ous­ness has been un­der­es­ti­mated, said Zheng Xuelin, pre­sid­ing judge of the Supreme Peo­ple’s Court tri­bunal for en­vi­ron­men­tal re­source cases.
