S Korea accuses Samsung plant of causing cancer
Associated Press : Dec 15 2012, 02:26 IST
South Korean government agency said Friday that working at a Samsung Electronics factory caused the breast cancer of a worker who died earlier this year, only the second time it has recognised a link between cancer and Samsung’s chip plants. The Korea Workers' Compensation and Welfare Service, which is part of the labour ministry, ruled earlier this month that there was a “considerable causal relationship” between the woman's cancer and her five years of work at a semiconductor plant near Seoul.
