Polluting firms fined and shut

CHINA has imposed punishment in 25,164 environmental violation cases in the first half of 2015, with 9,325 companies shut down, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said yesterday.

Violators were fined more than 230 million yuan (US$37.6 million), and 740 cases of suspected environmental crime have been transferred to the police for criminal investigation.

Since an Environmental Protection Law took effect this year, authorities have closed down companies, limited or suspended production, and detained wrong-doers.

The ministry has given administrative punishment to 10 cities, and people in charge of polluting companies in four of them were warned or sacked.
