The director of the Environmental Protection Bureau secretly transferred the water quality sampling from the chemical plant, and the sewage samples obtained from Ma Tou Village were quietly disposed of. At noon, he had dinner with the owner of the chemical plant, deliberately saying that he would work hard to settle the matter, and after the meal he would return Hint to Party A that the family's cash flow has been poor recently.
Qi Heng has been paying attention to the sewage discharge case in Ma Tou Village. He heard that the results from the Environmental Protection Bureau were that the chemical plant did not discharge sewage, and all the tests were completely within the qualified range. If the chemical plant did not discharge sewage, what happened to the villagers with kidney failure. Qi Heng made a special trip to the director of the Procuratorate to discuss it. The director was aware of the public controversy caused by this incident. He felt that since the environmental protection bureau's test results were qualified, the political and legal department had no reason to appeal.
Immediately afterwards, public interest lawyer Zhu Liming submitted a new petition to the court. He sued the chemical plant for civil compensation to the surrounding sick villagers. Luo Huaigong was disapproving when he heard Zhu Liming's name, thinking that he was a clown who would disappear soon.
Now that someone has submitted a complaint, the court will take over the trial. Zhang Yanjun is also very concerned about this matter and specifically asked Qi Heng if he wanted to file a case. Qi Heng revealed that someone sent the water quality of Ma Tou Village to a third-party appraisal agency in Shanghai, and the results were inconsistent with the Environmental Protection Bureau. Zhang Yanjun was very puzzled when he heard this. He emphasized that the Environmental Protection Bureau was a government unit and had to preserve its image no matter what. He suggested that the trial should not be held in public. If there are really problems with the chemical plant in the future, compensation should be compensated and management should be carried out. Qi Heng understood Zhang Yanjun's intention to settle out of court. This matter involved a lot, so he carefully considered and patiently replied to Zhang Yanjun.
County Magistrate Liu also heard about Jiang Yun Chemical Plant. He pointed at the director of the Environmental Protection Bureau and scolded him, asking what was going on. Jiang Yun Chemical Plant had paid a lot of taxes to the county finance over the years and made great contributions. The production of chemical plants must not be affected. The director of the Environmental Protection Bureau assured that the sewage from the chemical plant had been treated before discharge and there were no problems. It was Zhu Liming who was causing trouble.
Qi Heng finally decided to file a case for trial. When the dean heard his decision, he specifically asked him if he was ready. He solemnly reminded him that once the case was filed, Qi Heng would be openly fighting against those who saw and could not see the devil's mission. Qi Heng knew that the dean's words were out of concern for him, but when he saw the villagers in Ma Tou Village suffering from illness, he couldn't bear it and couldn't turn a blind eye.
Luo Huaigong received a summons from the court. He did not agree to the pre-trial settlement and insisted on facing Bo in court. A tough battle was coming, and Marathon and his colleagues were eager to take action when they heard the news. This was the first local civil lawsuit against environmental protection, which was of great significance to them. In court, the defense lawyer claimed that the Environmental Protection Agency's sampling process was legal and reasonable, but that the other party's sampling was of unknown origin and could not be used as evidence to refute. After careful consideration, the judge decided to test the water samples from the chemical plant again.
When Luo Huaigong heard that he was going to take samples again, he specially found a lot of people dressed as chemical plant workers to stop it. Not only that, the sampling employees went to take samples of the nearby underground soil and found that thick cement had been poured on the soil. People from the chemical plant guarded the sampling site in batches 24 hours a day, and the third-party appraisal agency had no chance to obtain the samples.
