Court solves all cases

THE Expo Court, set up to deal with problems at the event, has so far dealt with fewer cases than expected, judges said yesterday.

Judges attributed the small number of cases, 14 so far, to strong planning before the event and the effective work of mediation centers set up by the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

However, Chen Xueming, chief of the Expo Court, said there would be a rising number of cases related to consumer disputes, personal and property damages and business problems as the Expo Shanghai goes on.

Of the 14 completed cases, most were related to Expo construction involving foreign pavilions such as Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

All cases have been mediated except one.

A construction worker, surnamed Yang, fell from scaffolding when decorating the Saudi Arabia Pavilion and broke his spleen. It had to be surgically removed.

Yang had a dispute with his employer, surnamed Pan, over the compensation and the court quickly settled the dispute, ordering Pan to pay 135,000 yuan (US$19,912) in compensation to Yang.
