China Seizes Tainted Milk Parents To Stop Court Visit

From Reuters:

Chinese police have detained two parents whose children were sickened by drinking tainted milk, to stop them attending the trial of dairy executives implicated in the scandal, one father and fellow activists said on Wednesday.

The men had planed to travel to northern Hebei province for the expected sentencing on Thursday of key figures from the now bankrupt Sanlu group, accused of producing and selling milk laced with the industrial chemical melamine.

The travel clampdown comes days after lawyers representing 213 poisoned children sent a bold but probably hopeless plea to the Supreme Court, seeking to sue several companies that produced contaminated milk.
