Agent Orange victims go to court in the US
14 June 2007
An estimated 3 million Vietnamese are suffering from the horrendous health effects inflicted by the dioxin-laden herbicide Agent Orange, which was employed liberally by the US during the Vietnam War.
In 2004, the victims, represented by the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA), initiated a legal action in the US against nearly 40 chemical companies that supplied the chemical.
A rejection of the case in early 2005 is being appealed and oral argumentation will begin in a New York court on June 18.
