  • Residents in Kallinge, who for many years drank water contaminated by the chemical PFAS have the right to compensation, a district court has ruled.
  • The chemical has led to a "sustainable change and deterioration" of the plaintiffs' bodies, the court ruled.
  • "I will not be less poisoned because of [this ruling], but justice has been done," said a relieved Cecilia Oijens, one of the plaintiffs.
