    Toxic waste returns from Brazil

    [​IMG] Sending toxic waste abroad is illegal under international law

    Containers of hazardous waste alleged to have been illegally exported from the UK to Brazil are due back later.
    More than 70 of the 89 containers are expected at Felixstowe, Suffolk, on board the cargo ship MSC Serena, with more of the waste due at a later date.
    A UK investigation has been launched into how 1,400 tonnes of toxic waste, said to include syringes and condoms, reached Brazil.
    Three men were arrested in raids in Swindon in July as part of the inquiry.
    The Environment Agency began its investigation after the waste was found by Brazilian officials in three of the country's ports over the past few months.

    When the containers arrive back in the UK later, the agency said it would fumigate them before carrying out a full investigation of their contents.
    The waste will then be dealt with by an appointed contractor.
    Earlier this month, officers from the agency's National Environmental Crime Team, along with Wiltshire Police, raided premises in Swindon.
    The three arrested men, aged 24, 28 and 49, were bailed until the end of October.
    Andrew Higham, head of the Environment Agency's National Environment Crime Unit, said the illegal export of waste was treated extremely seriously.
    "The United Kingdom has taken a strong global lead to stamp out the illegal waste trade, in order to protect people and the environment," he said.
    "We are not going to allow our waste to be dumped on developing countries."
    Waste can be sent abroad for recycling, but not for disposal.
    The maximum penalty for exporting waste illegally is an unlimited fine or up to two years in prison.

    Muhtasari kwa Kiswahili

    Kwa kifupi, Makonteina yenye uchafu usioweza kusafishika na ni hatari kwa jamii na mazingira (tani 1,400) yalipelekwa Brazil kutokea Uingereza. Baada ya makonteina kufika Brazil, serikali ya Brazil ikakataa kuyapokea na mara moja wakaifaini Uingereza poundi milion moja na kuamrisha Uingereza kuharakisha kuzoa matakataka yao kwa gharama yao wenyewe.

    Uchunguzi baadae umegundua kuwa kampuni Uingereza iliyoshughulikia upelekaji wa 'takataka sumu' Brazil inamilikiwa na watu wazaliwa wa Brazil.

    Mkuu hii hapa Tanzania haiwezekani. Kama Waziri anayeshughulikia mazingira akipewa mshiko, mwandishi wa habari anayetaka kuandika kuhusu habari hiyo akitishiwa, wanamazingira wakipewa trip mbili tatu nje hakuna atakayesema. Hii ni Tanznaia umesahau??
