China dairy manager on trial for milk scandal

China dairy manager on trial for milk scandal

The official Xinhua News Agency says a trial has begun for the chairwoman of the dairy at the heart of China's tainted milk scandal.
Xinhua says court proceedings against three other executives of the Sanlu Group Co. also began Wednesday in the Shijiazhuang Intermediate People's Court in northern China.
Tian Wenhua, Sanlu's former board chairwoman and general manager, and her colleagues are accused of producing and selling fake or substandard products. The Xinhua report does not say what punishment they could face if convicted.
Milk powder contaminated with the industrial chemical melamine has been blamed for the deaths of at least six children and the sickening of nearly 300,000 others.
