 The first criminal charges have been filed in the US state of Michigan in connection with the contamination of the water supply with lead in the city of Flint. Three officials have been charged with offences including tampering with evidence, conspiracy and misconduct in office, Gary O'Donoghue reports.  “In 2014, the city of Flint switched its water supply from Lake Huron to the local Flint river in a money saving exercise. Immediately, residents began complaining about the quality. It took 18 months for the Michigan authorities to acknowledge the problems. Leading to accusations, the residents of Flint were ignored because they are largely poor and black. But state and local officials face a number of investigations and Michigan’s attorney general Bill Schuette has promised to leave no stone unturned and more charges are expected shortly.”

leave no stone unturned:千方百计,想尽办法


 美国密歇根州弗林特市,供水受铅污染一案的第一批犯罪起诉已经递交。三名官员因篡改证据、妨碍和误导政府工作而被起诉。请看加里·欧得诺德带来的报道。“2014年,为了节约成本,弗林特市停止从胡伦湖取水,转而从当地的弗林特河取水。但改变供水源后,居民们立刻爆出水的质量有问题。之后,密歇根有关部门花了18个月时间来调查此事。虽然事件最终导致三名官员被起诉,但由于弗林特居民大多贫穷且为黑人,故一直没有得到重视。如今,密歇根州政府和弗林特市政府都面临着一系列调查,而密歇根总检察官也表示一定会彻查到底,同时将在短期内提起更多诉讼。”
