Description - Lorraine Connection by Dominique Manotti
A factory owned by the Korean Daewoo group in Pondage, Lorraine, manufactures cathode ray tubes. Working conditions are abysmal, but it's the only source of employment in the area and workers are too scared to protest until a strike breaks out and there's a fire at the factory - but is it an accident? Later, the factory is the focus of a strategic takeover battle by electronics giant Thompson. Contrary to expectations, the Matra-Daewoo alliance wins the bid - and rival contender Alcatel suspects foul play. Intrepid private eye Charles investigates.
