UNION CARBIDE STATEMENT ON BHOPAL NEWS REPORTS

 UNION CARBIDE STATEMENT ON BHOPAL NEWS REPORTS
 DANBURY, Conn., March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Any attempt to extradite


former chairman Warren M. Anderson to India would be disgraceful, a spokesperson for Union Carbide Corporation (NYSE: UK) today said.
 The spokesperson noted that the Bhopal tragedy occurred in a plant owned and operated by an Indian company in which Union Carbide Corporation held 50.9 percent of the stock and Government of India institutions held, and continue to hold, 25 percent of the stock. As chairman of Union Carbide Corporation, Anderson had no involvement with the operations of the Indian company.
 To persist in continued harassment of Anderson, who retired in 1986 and is now seventy years old, would send a signal to the world that the Indian Government is permitting those who favor local political expediency to dominate its policy making, the spokesperson added.
 Anderson's only connection was after the tragedy when he attempted to bring aid and relief to the victims in Bhopal.
