CRI,  May 24, 2012

The smuggling of electronics waste into China is rampant till date.
The alarming 70% of the worldwide waste is being  dumped in China.

Much had to be done to penalise  producers if current measures could not
ensure these toxic producers be held responsible for their expired product
in contaminating our eco systems.

As for the thread at hand - given the amount of gold and other metals that are in some electronic goods, it could mean that some folks in P.R.
