HANOI, Vietnam

The steel unit of Taiwan's Formosa Plastics Group (FPG), which is being sued by over 200 Vietnamese fishermen for compensation over this year’s pollution, has said this week that the case will be handled by the Vietnamese government.

The company said it has nothing to do with the (lawsuit) matter, and is therefore unable to comment.
